Sevilla star Steven Nzonzi, who is now a World Cup winner, has caught the attention of the Catalan club and the Italian side in recent weeks, and is said to be looking for a new adventure after three successful seasons at his current club. 

Sevilla's sporting director Joaquin Caparros has now confirmed that the Frenchman, who missed the Supercopa de Espana encounter against the Blaugrana on Sunday, would like to leave the club in this window. 

"Nzonzi wants to leave," the sporting director told Cadena Ser.

"But he is aware that he has two years left on his contract with us. At Sevilla, he has become a national team player and has become a champion."

Caparros also insisted his club would only allow the 29-year-old to leave in the coming days should their valuation of him be met. 

"He is a footballer who is in the market and knows that he has to bring us an interesting offer for us to consider it. If not, he is still under contract," he added.

In the latest development, AS Roma have confirmed the midfielder is currently in Italy and on the verge of the joining the club. He arrived in Rome for completion of his transfer on Tuesday, but still needs to pass his medical and put pen to paper on his contract with the Serie A side.
