Steven N'Zonzi quells Arsenal transfer talk

The midfielder has been linked with Arsenal and Liverpool this week.

"The reality is that he isn't in the plans of the Coach, from what I can tell, but that doesn't mean it can't change at any time".

Speaking to France Football this week, N'Zonzi confirmed his intention to leave Sevilla this winter, and could be sold for less than his £35 million release clause.

West Ham are being tipped to move for a midfielder in N'Zonzi's mould this winter, with Sporting CP's William Carvalho linked again this week.

"Whether in a 4-3-3, 3-5-2 or any other formation, a player must adapt to what his coach demands and I have always done it".

But the player now accepts that his future is "clearly away from Seville".

"The fact I was always professional despite the circumstances, that I always did my job, I found it unfair". "The only thing that disappoints me is the manner in which this is ending".

He felt he was singled out for blame as Sevilla trailed by three goals to nil and has since been omitted from the squad for La Liga victories over Villarreal and Deportivo La Coruna and the Copa del Rey round of 32 second-leg defeat of second-tier Cartagena. "He has two-and-a-half years of his contract and he will have to fulfil them".

Sevilla gave N'Zonzi permission to fly to London to visit his son and the chairman has insisted he must respect Berizzo's decision, which seems to suggest the club are backing the manager after the bust-up.

Everton are now leading the race for N'Zonzi, who has a buyout clause of £35.2million, but the club are hopeful of striking a deal closer to £25m for him in the January transfer window.
