Juventus may use Arsenal target in a swap deal for midfielder Steven N’Zonzi, according to Tuttosport.

The Gabon international has been heavily linked with moves to the Gunners, Everton and Watford over the past few weeks, and it is believed that Juve are open to offers for the 23 year old.

Former Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City player N’Zonzi signed a new deal to stay with Sevilla back in February, when he was a target for Arsenal among other clubs, but it is believed a €40million release clause was added in to his contract.

Rather than meet the release clause outright, Juventus may include Lemina to increase the value of their offer. The midfielder has spent the last two years in Turin; the first of which was a season long loan spell.

Since being signed on a permanent basis for £8m last summer, he has started just 11 times, making 29 appearances in total and scoring one goal.
