Steven N’Zonzi could yet emerge as a transfer target for Arsenal, according to reports.

The former Blackburn and Stoke midfielder is currently plying his trade at Sevilla, with Chelsea, Manchester City and Juventus also monitoring the 28-year-old’s situation.

According to the Daily Express, Sevilla have accepted that N’Zonzi will leave the club in the coming months and Arsene Wenger is tempted to compete for the uncapped Frenchman’s signature.

Jack Wilshere’s uncertain Emirates future could be resolved, with reports suggesting that the midfielder is in line for a new contract.

The 25-year-old has impressed his loan club Bournemouth but, according to The Sun, Eddie Howe is resigned to seeing Wilshere sign new terms with his parent club.

Wilshere, who arrived on the south coast in search of regular first-team football, has one year remaining on his current Arsenal contract.

One Arsenal midfielder who may well be on his way out of north London is Gedion Zelalem, who is attracting the attention of Borussia Dortmund.

The 19-year-old Germany-born playmaker is one of the club’s promising youngsters, but has made only two senior appearances this season since impressing on loan at Rangers last term.

Zelalem, who switched international allegiances to the United States in 2015, will see his contract at the Emirates expire at the end of this season and could follow former team-mate Serge Gnabry to the Bundesliga.
