AS Roma midfielder Steven Nzonzi wants to part ways with the Rome outfit and return to the Premier League, according to the various reports from England and Italy
Followed by Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, the 30-year-old is desperate to return to the English top tier where he spent six years playing for Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City.
The tall Frenchman arrived at the Stadio Olimpico from Sevilla last summer for a fee of €30 million including add-ons but has had mixed fortunes in spite of collecting 22 Serie A starts.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Nzonzi would like a move back to England, where his son currently resides.
After failing to adapt to the Italian style of football, the World Cup winner has expressed his desire to swap the Apennines for the Premier League.
However, the Giallorossi are unwilling to lose a single penny and are expected to demand at least what they had to pay Sevilla to bring the player to Italy’s capital.
Considering Nzonzi has already entered the fourth decade, it is highly improbable the interested parties would be ready to meet Roma’s excessive demands.
