Unai Emery told to sell Arsenal stars before Gunners can seal £25M transfer of midfield maestro

It seems as if new Arsenal manager Unai Emery is going to have to some more reshuffling of his squad if he’s to bring a certain World Cup winner to the Emirates this summer.

The club have already let stars such as Per Metresacker and Santi Cazorla go this summer, and it looks as if the Gunners are going to have to see more players leave the club before they can bring in one of their targets.

As per the Daily Mail, the north London side have informed Emery that is going to have to sell a player or two before he can seal a deal to bring Steven N’Zonzi back to the Premier League.

The report also states that the Spaniard is eyeing up a £25M move for the Frenchman, a deal that would be an absolute bargain for the club.

Arsenal are going to have to get rid of some players before bringing in N’Zonzi this summer

N’Zonzi, who was part of the France squad that won the World Cup in Russia this summer, would be a great addition for Arsenal, and is one that the club have been crying out for for some time.

The Frenchman has built up a reputation of being a robust, controlling central defensive midfielder, a position that the Gunners haven’t been strong in since the days of Patrick Vieira.

This news will be disappointing for Emery, as it means that he’s going to have his work cut out if he’s to bring in N’Zonzi, as there are only a handful of days left in this summer’s transfer window for English clubs.
