Juve scout Sevilla’s N’Zonzi

Sevilla midfielder Steven N’Zonzi featured in the club’s friendly with Everton on Sunday and was watched by Juventus director Fabio Paratici.

The Italian champions have been linkd with a move to the French midfielder all summer but Los Rojiblancos have refused to budge on the €40m release clause in his contract.

Sporting director Oscar Arias admitted earlier this summer he ‘couldn’t do anything’ to stop the former Blackburn and Stoke midfielder leaving Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan should his clause be met.

However, the Bianconeri are reportedly still hopeful on negotiating this down and prefer a move for the 28-year-old ahead of Blaise Matuidi and Andre Gomes.
