Arsenal are reportedly in poll position to sign Blackburn Rovers midfielder Steven N’Zonzi in the summer.


Sky Sports are reporting that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been interested in the Frenchman for some time and is readying an offer for the transfer window reopening.


N’Zonzi was the subject of much interest during the January window but decided to stay at Ewood Park to help the club avoid relegation, though it now appears he is ready to leave and Emirates Stadium looks to be the likely destination.


The report claims that Stoke City attempted to sign the 23-yer-old in the winter window but could not convince him to move away from Rovers.


While the report claims that Arsenal are the side leading the race for a player who was dubbed the ‘new Patrick Vieira’, it also credits Chelsea Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United as having an interest in the former Amiens midfielder.


N’Zonzi could be one of an exodus from Rovers if they fail to avoid relegation and the Gunners would likely be able to land him for a small fee.
