Steven N’Zonzi puts Premier League clubs on alert with ex-Stoke ace set to leaving Sevilla following boss bust-up

Former Stoke midfielder has been forced to train alone after he stormed out of the stadium during Sevilla's clash with Liverpool

Sevilla could sell Steven N’Zonzi following a bust-up with the manager.

The ex-Stoke man was hooked off at half time during his side’s dramatic 3-3 draw against Liverpool last month.

Sevilla were 3-0 behind after the first 45 minutes and N’Zonzi was furious that manager Eduardo Berizzo subbed him instead of team-mate Guido Pizarro.

Steven N’Zonzi could be a transfer target for Premier League clubs in January

AS report that the France midfielder showered and then left the stadium instead of watching his side’s remarkable comeback.

N’Zonzi then missed training the following day and was left out of the matchday squads to face Villarreal and Cartagena in the cup.

He has been forced to train alone and his relationship with his manager is thought to be irreparable.

The 28-year-old was heavily linked with a move away from the Spanish club last summer with Arsenal and Leicester interested.

He has a contract until 2020 but refused to commit to Sevilla when asked about his future last month.

He 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.
