Arsenal have agreed a £35.3million deal for Sevilla midfielder Steven N'Zonzi, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish publication El Gol report that a deal for the former Premier League man, who has a buy-out clause of £35.2million, could be finalised in the January transfer window.

Arsenal's package to bring in the Frenchman would reportedly include a transfer fee of £32.7million, plus £2.6million in bonuses.

N'Zonzi, who has made it clear that he wants to leave the La Liga outfit in January, has been left out of Sevilla's squad since being substituted at half-time in the 3-3 draw with Liverpool in the Champions League on November 21.

N'Zonzi confirmed he had a bust-up with Sevilla manager Eduardo Berizzo at half-time and their relationship is now beyond repair.
