Rich English football club Chelsea would be required to spend more money in transfer deal if they want Steven N’zonzi, according to reports.
The midfielder has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge but his parent club Sevilla are set to offer him a new deal that would see his release clause raised far above the £27 million he is currently priced.
Daily Star report that the Europa League defending champions want the player to remain, but would get as much as possible if he were to exit the side. Club president Jose Castro told Spanish football news outlet, Don Balon:
“I know that N’Zonzi is attracting a lot of interest, and because of that we’re talking about a new contract. It is only a good thing that teams are chasing him, there isn’t anything negative in that. We always want to keep good players in our team, unless there are offers that you can’t turn down.
