Do you think Nzonzi would be a good fit for the Blaugrana or Roma?

Nzonzi didn't feature in Sevilla's 2-1 defeat to Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup with Sevilla's sporting director, Joaquin Caparros, confirming in a recent interview that Nzonzi had expressed his desire to leave the club. "I'm very pleased to be here".

The 29-year-old French midfielder joined the Andalusian‎ outfit from Stoke City in 2015 and now has two years remaining on his present contract.

" I realised Roma wanted to buy me and that alone was very pleasing, because this is a great club". We always had a lot of respect for each other and he helped me a lot at Sevilla, so I'm very happy to be here and work with him again. I thank the fans for welcoming me at the airport and promise to give my all. Reports indicate, however, that the Sevilla player prefers Paris.

Star Trek Discovery's Mr. Spock Has Been Cast
Set in the years before the original Star Trek series, Star Trek: Discovery made frequent reference to Spock in its first season. Star Trek: Discovery's search for Spock is now over. "In that spirit, we're thrilled to welcome him to the family".

N'Zonzi is now set to become the latest high-profile figure to arrive at Roma this summer after the signings of Javier Pastore and Justin Kluivert.

Italian club Roma, who finished third in Serie A last season, begin their new league campaign on Sunday, away to Torino in a 17:00 BST kick-off.

N'Zonzi, 29, featured in five of France's World Cup fixtures, including the final.

Nzonzi will be a big influence on this team and new boss Eusebio Di Francesco will know he has a reliable presence in the centre of midfield.
