Perry Groves has told bwin that he thinks Arsenal should look at N’Zonzi, who scored in Sevilla’s win over the Gunners at the weekend.

Arsenal have been linked with moves for a battler in midfield this summer and Sporting Lisbon’s William Carvalho has been mentioned.

However, 52 year old Arsenal legend Groves insists Steven N’Zonzi fits the bill.

Groves said: “I’m not just saying this because I watched him at the Emirates Cup but I’ve been a massive fan of Steven N’Zonzi, I think he could do a real job in the centre of that midfield for us, adding the steel he did at Stoke and Blackburn. He’s a destroyer.”

Standing at 6’5?, N’Zonzi would certainly add a physical presence to the midfield.

He was Stoke’s player of the year in 2014/15, and recently won his first senior honours with Sevilla, the UEFA Europa League in 2015/16 in which earned him a place in the Europa League team of the season that year too.
