Arsenal are reportedly keeping tabs on Blackburn midfielder Steven N'Zonzi.
The uncompromising 22-year-old has been one of the rare bright sparks in an often depressing season for Rovers and is thought to be the target for a number of clubs in England and on the continent.
Now, according to The Independent, Arsenal are 'known' to be chasing N'Zonzi, along with teammate Phil Jones, who is also a transfer target for Liverpool.
The ex-Amiens man has perhaps failed to live up to his early promise since moving to Ewood Park in 2009, but has done enough to alert Arsenal. A summer swoop by the Gunners has now been touted as Arsene Wenger looks to overhaul his current crop.
N'Zonzi, a former France under 21 international, has been compared to Arsenal great Patrick Vieira due to his imposing frame and passing ability.
