Given Emery has worked with the player in the past, it was believed he would be chasing him as Arsenal manager.
But it appears Emery does not see Nzonzi as a target. It may have something to do with the signing of Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria, as the two play in a similar position.
He was questioned about the player in his press conference and he said: "I know him but we haven't made a move for him."
It appears Arsenal are close to completing their transfer window, with the manager suggesting one more incoming transfer was possible.
