Arsenal’s new boss Unai Emery continues to eye midfield additions, despite already signing and Torreira, as he prepares for his first Premier League campaign.

The Gunners have lost the services of both Jack and this summer, both of whom saw their at the club expire, but still have the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny at their disposal.

However, Emery wants another addition and France Football states he remains intent on landing Steven N’Zonzi from former employers Sevilla – although Arsenal are not prepared to match the France international’s €40m (£35.6m) release clause.

Recently crowned a World Cup winner, N’Zonzi boasts previous Premier League experience following stints with City and and is understood to be keen on a return to English football – although are standing firm on their demands.

With N’Zonzi now 29, Arsenal are reluctant to pay such a high price for a player approaching his thirties and want to negotiate a reduced fee.
