Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is interested in signing Sevilla star Steven N’Zonzi to this January.

Guardiola is interested in a £25m swoop this transfer window following Fernandinho’s discipline problems and Ilkay Gundogan horror injury, according to The Sun.

He has been left short in central midfield, and sees N’Zonzi as the ideal replacement to command that area.

And the Europa League champions could be open to selling him IF a swap deal was put into place.

Sevilla already have ex-Arsenal ace Samir Nasri on-loan from City, and could be interested in a permanent switch for him.
