Arsenal have joined the competition to sign Sevilla midfielder Steven N’Zonzi.
Reported from the Daily Express who say the North Londoners will battle Chelsea and Manchester City for the former Blackburn man’s signature, with Serie A side Juventus also interested.
Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger is keen to strengthen his team after seeing Arsenal’s title challenge falter in recent weeks, despite a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace yesterday
N’Zonzi netted 11 Premier League goals across spells with Rovers and Stoke between 2009 and 2015.
Arsene Wenger described Frenchman wonder-goal as a work of art and one of the top five goals of his 20-year Arsenal reign.
Giroud netted with a stunning overhead scorpion-style back flick as the Gunners got themselves back up to third in the table by beating Crystal Palace, 2-0, writes Mirror Football’s John Cross.
Wenger said: “Olivier had that kind of reflex and he transformed that goal, I would say, into art. It was art because of the surprise, because of the beauty of the movement and because of the efficiency of the movement.
“The ball went in, so you have it all.
“That will be remembered as the Giroud goal that nobody will forget.”
Modest post-match interview.
“He’s looking because the ball’s behind him to get any sort of contact and fortunately for him and Arsenal, it’s ended up in the back of the net. Enjoy the moment Olivier, you improvised, showed great athleticism but there was a large slice of luck.”
