Peter Crouch criticises Arsene Wenger for failing to sign Steven Nzonzi and says Unai Emery is ‘asking for trouble’ with his Arsenal tactics

Peter Crouch claims it is ‘madness’ that Arsene Wenger did not sign Steven Nzonzi for Arsenal and believes Unai Emery is ‘asking for trouble’ with his current tactics.

The Gunners were heavily linked with a move for Nzonzi in 2015 but the French midfielder, who was playing for Stoke City at the time, ended up joining Sevilla for £7 million.

Reports have also claimed that Emery was also keen on a move for Nzonzi last year but he was overruled by Arsenal’s hierarchy, who ended up signing Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria instead.
