Steven N’Zonzi has been linked with Arsenal in the last few days, and following the news that he’s travelled to London, Gunners fans have started to get excited.

Although Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka have begun to form a good partnership in the middle of the park, there are still many who believe the Gunners need a more physical presence if they’re going to be successful.

Steven N’Zonzi has been one option linked in the past, with former players calling on the club to sign the midfielder over the summer, and those calls being echoed by fans as the season got underway.

Now, after a falling out with his current club Sevilla, N’Zonzi appears to be on the market in January, as he hasn’t even made the squad for three games in a row.

He travelled to London this week, reportedly to visit his child, but that hasn’t stopped Arsenal fans from buying into the speculation that it could be to negotiate a transfer to North London.

There are still some doubts about whether the rumours are true. But if they are, it seems the Gunners’ supporters would be behind the deal.

With the transfer window fast approaching, we won’t have to wait too long to find out.
