Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger has found the perfect moment to make a move for one of the players he has admired for some time, Steven N’Zonzi.
At 23-years-old, N’Zonzi was one of the best defensive midfielders of the season in England, and despite the fact that his side Blackburn Rovers got relegated, he has managed to attract a lot of praise.
The former French youth international joined Blackburn in 2009, and one year later Wenger already tried to transfer him, but the move was blocked. Now that the Rovers are going to have to start from scratch from the second division, N’Zonzi’s departure is only a matter of time and destination.
It is being reported that Wenger wasted no time in trying to persuade the midfielder to join Arsenal, and that he has already made an inquiry for the French youngster.
With 34 appearances and 2 goals under his belt in the season which just ended, the midfielder is seen as an amazing addition to a wounded Arsenal side which has major midfield problems with Wilshere and Diaby’s long injury streaks, and with Frimpong’s leg break.
Do you think that Steven N’Zonzi is good enough to make an impression at Arsenal against the likes of Alex Song?
