Arsenal boss Unai Emery is hoping to reunite with Steven N’Zonzi at the Emirates this summer.

The 46-year-old is a long-term admirer of the France international after he signed him for Sevilla in 2015.

Emery had to persuade the club’s board to push ahead with deal for the France international.

The former Blackburn Rovers star has been linked to the Gunners in recent years, but a deal has never materialised.

N’Zonzi played under the management of the 46-year-old at Sevilla for one season before Emery left to join Paris Saint-Germain.

He is keen to bring N’Zonzi to England, but Spanish sources suggest that several clubs are scrambling for his signature.

After kicking off his career for Amiens, N’Zonzi joined Blackburn and then switched to Stoke for £4.4million in 2012.

He was then snapped up by Emery in 2015 for £8million, where he has since cemented his spot in the first team.

New Sevilla boss Pablo Machin has insisted that the 29-year-old will remain with the La Liga side next season.

He said: “I think he has been here for many years and rumours have always been heard.
