French Star Steven Nzonzi has been linked with a transfer to the Emirates this summer. Several reports from Spain had earlier claimed that the 29-year-old that he submitted a transfer request as he seeks to force a move through.

However new Gunners coach Unai Emery has rebuffed all reports claiming that Arsenal have not been in contact with the lanky defensive midfielder. Emery was speaking to reporters in a press conference and admitted that the Arsenal are still looking to add another signing this summer if possible.

He revealed that the club had signed players in different positions and would be looking inwards to the youth players to cover some positions.

Nzonzi has developed into one of the best in the defensive midfield position since his move to Spain from England in 2015. The French star is known for his strength and position awareness which sets the tone for his team attacks.

Arsenal fans would be happy if a deal can be reached to bring the player back to England. However, Arsenal already have a cover in the defensive midfield position with the arrival of Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria.

The highly-rated midfielder joined the Emirates-based outfit on a €30 million deal this summer, the 22-year-old is expected to sit in front of the defence and offer protection to the defence.

Nzonzi played under Emery at Sevilla and won the Europa cup in his first season with the Andalusian club.
