Bengaluru, December 4: North London giants Arsenal are keen on bringing Sevilla star Steven N'zonzi back to the Premier League, according to reports in Spain.

The 28-year-old is believed to be unhappy with the La Liga side after falling out with boss Eduardo Berizzo following the 3-3 draw with Liverpool last month.

The French midfield maestro was left enraged after he was brought off at half-time with his side trailing 3-0 and decided to leave the stadium instead of watching his team play in the second half.

He hasn't featured for Los Rojiblancos since coming off against the Reds back in November and his future hangs in the balance at the moment.

ESPN reports that Arsene Wenger is a huge fan of the former Blackburn and Stoke City midfielder and wants him signed in January to add more composure along with steel in his midfield.

Arsene Wenger was believed to be keen on landing the two-time capped French international in the summer, and will now look at activating his £35million release clause in January.

Meanwhile, Everton are also interested in the lanky midfielder and we all know that they have the financial prowess to lure the enforcer. Plus, his former Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce is in charge of Everton now which might make it harder for Arsenal to get their man.

The Frenchman has been frozen out of matchday squads in recent weeks and has been forced to train alone, and has opened the door to a move back to England.

Speaking recently, he said: "Who knows what is going to happen. I am not going to talk about contracts.

"I love the Premier League. I really like the Premier League, this is where I started at a good level.

"I had a great time there but I don’t know what is going to happen in the future."
