‘I’d rather Doucoure’ – Most Arsenal fans don’t want to sign this ex-Premier League ace

The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been looking at their midfield options recently as they prepare for the new season. The club is yet to sign a player to bolster their midfield, but according to almost everyone, The Gunners are nearing the signing of Lucas Torreira. However, they could also be set to move for Steven N’Zonzi according to The Sun.

Steven N’Zonzi (who has already been linked in the Daily Mail) has already shown he can be a top player in the Premier League. Before signing for Sevilla he played his football at the Britannia Stadium for Stoke and he could now be set to make a return to the English top division with Arsenal, meaning he’ll also be playing under his former boss at Sevilla, Unai Emery. The Spanish manager has been linked with signing a number of ex-players, although N’Zonzi has been linked with the Gunners before.

Emery has supposedly toyed with the idea of bringing Ever Banega and Adrien Rabiot to The Emirates have managed both of them previously at Sevilla and PSG. The 29-year-old fits a different mould to Banega and Rabiot though. The tough-tackling midfielder has more grit to his game and would complement the Arsenal midfield, slotting in alongside Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey he would be a perfect player for their system, however, the Arsenal fans don’t know about the price tag.

As you can see, the fans don’t see the need to sign N’Zonzi as his age, price tag and the fact they’re signing Torreira all pointing to the same conclusion that they don’t need him.
