Tottenham could move to secure £35m midfield addition

Tottenham are interested in signing Sevilla star Steven N’Zonzi this summer, according to reports.

N’Zonzi, the France midfielder, has established himself as a top class performer since leaving Stoke for Sevilla three summers ago.

He has won the Europa League with the Spanish side, and he picked up his first international cap last year, going on to be named in France’s squad for this summer’s World Cup.

His performances for Sevilla has consistently seen N’Zonzi linked with a move to one of Europe’s biggest clubs, and a return to English football has often been mooted.

The 29-year-old, who has a £35m release clause, spent three years at Blackburn before joining the Potters for another three seasons, and Tottenham, are now reported as being interested in N’Zonzi, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Mauricio Pochettino, the Spurs manager, has reportedly identified N’Zonzi as the player he wants to replace Mousa Dembele, with the Belgium international expected to leave north London this summer.
