Steven N'Zonzi Set For Incredible £35 Million Move

Steven N'Zonzi's fine form for Sevilla in La Liga hasn't gone unnoticed, with the Frenchman now set to sign for Juventus in a massive deal.

Romeo Gresti from Goal says that the 28-year old is expected to move to Turin for a fee of 40 million euros, which equates to £35 million. The Serie A club may well pay the fee over a two or three year period rather than upfront.

It's a huge career move for N'Zonzi, who moved to Blackburn Rovers for £500,000 in 2009, before joining Stoke City for £3 million three years on after Rovers were relegated to the Championship at the end of the 2011/12 campaign.

N'Zonzi quickly became a pivotal player for Tony Pulis, and later Mark Hughes, scooping the club's Player of the Year award and being snapped up by Sevilla for £7 million in 2015.

In Andalusia, the former Amiens man cemented his place as one of the top defensive midfielders in the world, displaying a remarkable improvement from his days in English football.

He won the Europa League in his first season at the club, and was a permanent fixture under Jorge Sampaoli last season, where he featured 45 times in all competitions,

A perfect mixture of combative and composed midfield displays forced several big clubs such as Manchester City and Barcelona to take notice, but it appears as though Champions League finalists Juventus will secure his services.
