Unai Emery eyeing a reunion with Steven N'Zonzi
According to the Mirror, Unai Emery is keen on signing Steven N'Zonzi for his new club. The Arsenal manager reportedly had a meeting with the head of recruitment Sven Mislintat and convinced him about making a move for the Sevilla midfielder.
Mislintat has reportedly sanctioned the deal for the 29-year-old. It was Emery who signed N'Zonzi back in 2015. Sevilla had signed the robust midfielder for £8 million from Stoke City. The Frenchman is also keen on making a return to the Premier League and playing under Emery.
West Ham United target Jack Wilshere
Manuel Pellegrini is looking to make a move for Arsenal's Jack Wilshere. The midfielder will be a free agent next month as the Hammers boss is monitoring the situation closely, report the Daily Star. Pellegrini has been an admirer of the 26-year-old since his Manchester City days.
Wilshere is scheduled for talks with Unai Emery later this month to discuss his Arsenal future. He has so far rejected a three-year extension from the club due to differences over performance and appearance-related wages. The likes of Everton, Crystal Palace and Newcastle United are also interested in the Arsenal man.
Benjamin Favard wants a move to Arsenal
The Gunners have received a huge boost in the form of Stuttgart defender Benjamin Pavard. According to Calcio Insider, Pavard has favoured a move to Arsenal this summer ahead of Borussia Dortmund.
Pavard is a right back but was played as a central defender by Stuttgart this season. He made 34 league appearances and it was his good form that got him selected in the French World Cup squad. The 22-year-old is valued at €50 million by the Bundesliga side.
