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

Posted May 17, 2018

Arsenal are reportedly holding talks with Jean Michael Seri's representatives in an attempt to bring the Ivorian to the Premier League, and here's how he could become the ideal replacement for supposed want-away Jack Wilshere.

Arsenal are interested in signing OGC Nice midfield Jean-Michael Seri, but the Ivorian may well prefer a move to the Gunners' Premier League rivals.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Gunners have expressed an interest in signing the 26-year-old this summer after having also been linked with a move to sign him last year.

Seri who is an Ivory Coast global with 18 caps and 30 appearances in Ligue 1 this season, scoring twice joined Nice from Pacos de Ferreira in 2015, after Seri having his youth career at ASEC Mimosas in his native country.

He has been a mainstay within the Good staff once more this time period, beginning 30 video games in Ligue 1 and chipping in with two targets, although his function is primarily as a defensive midfielder.

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

Should Seri indeed move to one of the London clubs this summer, he will be joining a team without Champions League football next season. Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri also appears to be in the running for the job at the North London club.
