Arsenal have reportedly received a boost in their pursuit of Sevilla star Steven Nzonzi.

The Gunners have targeted the French international to add some steel to their side.

La Liga club Sevilla are expecting Unai Emery to make his move for the 29-year-old soon.

And AS claim they have lined-up Real Madrid’s Marcos Llorente as a replacement for the midfielder.

The Spanish Under-21s international has struggled for minutes at the Bernabeu.

He is expected to hold talks with incoming Real manager Julen Lopetegui over his future as he prepares to make a decision on his future.

Real Betis are also keen, but the fact Sevilla could be a signal to Arsenal that they are ready to let Nzonzi depart.

They have refused to budge on their valuation of the ex-Blackburn and Stoke ace.

He has a £35million release clause inserted into his contract.

But that would take a huge chunk out of Emery’s £50m transfer kitty, which means he will be forced to try and sell some of the Gunners squad to raise extra funds.
