Arsenal in talks to sign Steven Nzonzi from Sevilla

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a hat-trick in Arsenal's first pre-season game of the campaign

Wenger ended his 22-year reign at Arsenal last season.

N'Zonzi has always been linked with a move to the Emirates and following the appointment of his former manager Unai Emery, it was believed that Arsenal would swoop for the player.

The experienced holding midfielder returned today from Russian Federation after featuring sporadically for France as they managed to win the World Cup. "I will say the same to any clubs who may be interested as what we said with [Barcelona signing Clement] Lenglet - he has a buyout clause, and it's £35m".

Speaking last week, Emery refused to close the door on new additions but said he was happy with his current squad.

"For me it's the same for one player as it is for 25 players".

"We want to help to be well, fine with us".

They have an advantage this summer, however, in that relatively few key players have been involved in the latter rounds of the World Cup and most of the squad will have had the rare luxury of a complete pre-season.

"The first two weeks for us is to start knowing the club, knowing the players, knowing all the people who are working with us". The national team didn't get the results they wanted but today he is on holiday and I want him to relax good and I want, when he comes back with us, to start with a good mentality. "But it's also important for them [to have] the holidays, because the season is very, very hard, it's very, very long, and they need the holidays". I want to work with him in a new way, and with an ambition for continuing with his quality [and] getting better in the team.
