Man City and Arsenal set to battle it out over former Blackburn and Stoke midfielder

Steven N'Zonzi has been a key player for Sevilla in the last two years

Steven N’Zonzi has opened the door to a Premier League return.

The Sevilla midfielder, formerly of Blackburn Rovers and Stoke, is contracted with the Spanish giants until 2020 but has been linked with a move to Arsenal or Man City.

Leicester had a £30million bid turned down for the 28-year-old in the summer of 2016.

And the combative midfielder, who made his France debut against Wales last Friday, would not rule out swapping La Liga for the Prem once again.

N’Zonzi 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.”

N’Zonzi, who faces Liverpool in the Champions League next week, now has his sights set on a World Cup spot for Les Bleus next summer.

But there is stiff competition with Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante set to return in midfield for Didier Deschamps’ men.

N’Zonzi added: “It is a good time (to make my debut). I feel good playing in Spain but there are a lot of players.

“There are a lot of quality players so I couldn’t complain not to be in the national team because in my position there are a lot of good players and competition.”

Pep Guardiola and Arsene Wenger have both said to be fans of N’Zonzi, who has improved further since his move to Spain.

Man City and Arsenal could battle it out for the newly-capped midfielder as soon as January.
