STEVEN N’ZONZI

New Gunners boss Unai Emery is desperate to sign the towering France international midfielder, The Mirror reports.

It is set to be a busy summer of recruitment for Arsenal and the Sevilla stalwart is near the top of the Spaniard’s summer wishlist, especially given the fact they worked together previously at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.

With Jack Wilshere set to depart on a free transfer and Aaron Ramsey’s future being the subject of intense transfer speculation, N’Zonzi is tipped to be a mainstay in the Premier League club’s midfield next term.

The 29-year-old, who previously played in England with Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City, is said to be keen for a new challenge and will discuss his future after the conclusion of the World Cup in Russia.

N’Zonzi is a man that Emery knows well.

FELIPE ANDERSON

Leicester are leading the race to sign the Lazio attacking midfielder, according to Football Italia.

The Foxes face competition from both Southampton and West Ham for the Brazilian’s signature, but are reportedly confident an offer in the region of £35 million (Dh171m) will be enough to seal the deal.

Anderson enjoyed a steady season with the Serie A side, scoring eight times and bagging 10 assists in all competitions. However, the Biancocelesti narrowly missed out on a Champions League place.

Anderson is billed as a replacement for Riyad Mahrez, who could potentially leave the King Power Stadium this summer.
