Angelo Mangiante of Sky Sport has reported that Monchi is closing in on Sevilla midfielder Steven Nzonzi.
Reportedly, Monchi is getting closer to acquiring the French World Cup winner for a figure of €25 million plus bonuses, as he is working in silence to try and avoid a situation similar to what happened with Malcom. However, Maxime Gonalons must first leave the club. The former Lyon man has refused a couple of offers from different squads. Meanwhile, for now, Leon Bailey costs too much for the Giallorossi.
#Monchi sempre più vicino in queste ore a #Nzonzi per rinforzare il centrocampo (€25m + bonus).
Si lavora in silenzio stavolta per evitare un"altra vicenda Malcom e prima deve uscire #Gonalons che ha rifiutato diverse squadre. #Bailey piace, ma per ora costa troppo. @SkySport pic.twitter.com/uJFwKMa00K
