Arsenal hold talks with Jean Seri's agents ahead of potential deal

Insigne Seri Francesco Pecoraro

According to the same story, Sanllehi was close to bringing Seri to FC Barcelona last summer when he was still a member of the La Liga outfit's board.

Seri is very much interested in moving to the Premier League, but the Nice ace would rather move to City or Chelsea, according to the Evening Standard. However, the move away from Nice never materialised and he subsequently stayed in France.

He has been a mainstay in the Nice team again this term, starting 30 games in Ligue 1 and chipping in with two goals, though his role is primarily as a defensive midfielder.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Gunners are interested in a potential deal to sign the Ivory Coast global at the end of the 2017-18 season.

For Arsenal, the interest in Seri does make sense as they get set for a complete overhaul of their squad in the summer following the departure of Arsene Wenger. Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri also appears to be in the running for the job at the North London club.

Neymar 'scared' ahead of World Cup return
Brazil forward, Neymar Jr, has admitted he is scared of the 2018 World Cup because of the pressure on him and his team-mates. The world's most expensive player was injured on February 25 playing for PSG against Marseille in the French league.

If either side are to land the midfielder this summer, though, they will need to cough up a considerable sum.

Seri could be the answer to our midfield struggles.

However, Arsenal still have a long way to go in their pursuit as Chelsea remain in pole position to sign the player.

And a move for Seri is on the cards, but the Gunners face an uphill battle with the 26-year-old setting his sights elsewhere.
