Arsenal Target Rovers Duo??

Arsenal Target Rovers Duo??

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Steven N'Zonzi and defender Phil Jones are understood to be attracting attention from Arsenal.

An Arsenal scout (who had been watching us in preparation to the meeting on Monday) is understood to have been impressed by N'Zonzi and Jones and has recommended the Rovers duo to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, urging him to make a double swoop in the summer.

21-year-old N'Zonzi (who has previously been labelled the next Patrick Vieira) has had a superb season following his bargain move from Amiens last summer and the defensive midfielder is expected to pick up the Player of the Year Award for Rovers. 18-year-old Jones has broken through into the Rovers first team and the central defender is set to have a superb career ahead of him with comparisons to John Terry (the on the field Terry!!) drawn.

Personally I think it'll be hard for us to keep hold of players such as N'Zonzi and Jones if teams like Arsenal do become interested, however, I don't think that either will be leaving Ewood Park just yet. The Zonz might be the more likely too (personally I think he'll be here next season though) but Jonesy would benefit more from continuing his development as part of the first team at Ewood rather than being a substitute at the Emirates.

Gooner here. Fair point on Jones, the boy looks class from what i have seen, but no doubt he will benefit from another season up North learning how to be a real thug ;-)....... As for N'Zonzi, to be honest I don't think he is any better than what we have already. Arsenal should be looking for top top class signings this summer and I don't think he is going to improve our team dramatically.

Can Wenger let his ego buy two players of Allardyce?! Didnt think so... and I wouldn't underrate The Zonz chippo, he has been a real calming influence and a steady influence... something you have lacked since the days of Flamini. But by all means, dont buy him ;)

big sam has brought along the youth well. we have aqbsolutely no need to sell these good young players. we should hold on to them and benefit from years of solid planning (thanks to Mr Williams)

Mikey to be honest I haven't seen too much of him, but I am looking forward to seeing him in action when I journey up to Ewood on the Bank Holiday Weekend!

Personally.. i want to keep them... but if stupid money is offered.. we have to let at least N'Zonzi go... if we get around £15m for him.. id take it.. thats £14.6m profit in a year... Jones I want to stay.. he is close to signing a new deal anyway!
