N’Zonzi denies Arsenal link


Steven N’Zonzi has denied he’s in talks with Arsenal despite confirming his desire to quit Sevilla when the transfer window opens in January.

The former Stoke and Blackburn midfielder has been left out of Sevilla’s squad for the last two league games after a huge falling out with coach Eduardo Berrizo and has made it clear he’ll leave the La Liga outfit in the coming weeks.

The France international is currently in London but his visit to the English capital is nothing to do with speculation linking him with the Gunners and Everton.

Speaking about the rumours, the 28-year-old explained to France Football (translated by the Evening Standard), “My future is clearly elsewhere than in Sevilla. The only thing that disappoints me is the manner in which this is ending.

“But what bothers me is the way it’s going. It had never been bad with a coach before. I never had that kind of problem.

“I’m indeed in London, but it’s got nothing to do with a transfer or football. I’ve come to see my son who lives here and to spend some time with him. As you can see, it’s not a question of signing for Arsenal or anywhere else.”
