According to Sevilla’s director of football Joaquin Caparros, the club will not sell the player until his release clause is activated.
While talking to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser, the director has admitted about the release clause activation.
He said, “Steven has two years remaining on his contract. We have texted each other during the World Cup and I have congratulated him on his achievements with France, of course.”
“We have not received any offers for him and I will say the same to any clubs who may be interested as what we said with Lenglet – he has a buyout clause, and it’s £35 million.”
N’Zonzi had been linked up with a possible move to the Gunner.
The midfielder was a part of Blackburn Rovers for a span of 3 years from 2009 to 2012, representing them in 96 matches and scoring on 5 occasions before heading to another English club, Stroke City in 2012. He debuted for the club in a home game against Manchester City which ended in a draw. The midfielder was bought by Stroke City for a fee of £3 million.
The French Midfielder represented Stroke city for 109 games and on 7 occasions he was on the scoring sheet for the club. The player then moved on to be a part of the Spanish side Sevilla for a fee of £7 million, on a four-year contract which includes a €30 million (£21.5m) buyout clause.
His debut for the Spanish club was dramatic when he was sent off in a goalless draw against Malaga Fc. Since then he has been a part of the Spanish side and has represented them in 136 matches and has 8 goals against his name.
Steven N’Zonzi now has a World cup winner against his name which can now attract other big European clubs to sign him.
