Tottenham Hotspur should battle for the towering Frenchman.
Several other Premier League sides have been linked as a result, but should Tottenham Hotspur enter the race and try bring him to North London?
N'Zonzi has several reported suitors - including Arsenal and Everton - but there isn't a lot of players on the continent who would turn down Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham at the moment.
Okay Spurs are enduring a bit of a rough spell in the Premier League, but topping a Champions League group ahead of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund should be a reminder that an off-colour spell doesn't detract from the fact that the Lilywhites have a very bright future under the Argentine.
Sky Sports reported that Tottenham are interested in Valencia midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia but N'Zonzi, worth around £27 million according to Transfermarkt, should certainly be considered.
He would not eligible to play in the latter stages in the Champions League this season, but the 6'4 powerhouse would be a welcome addition to the domestic fold as Pochettino's side look to finish in the top four again.
