One of Ligue 1’s most highly-rated midfielders, Jean Michaël Seri, is getting closer to the Nice exit door and his next destination could be the Premier League.
According to an exclusive report by Foot Mercato in France, an influential agent in the Premier League has been mandated to offer the Ivorian to prestigious Premier League clubs, with Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal specifically named.
Everton have also been sounded out about a deal but are not interested, because they feel they have enough players in Seri’s position.
Seri, who almost joined Barcelona last summer only for a deal to fall through, has been linked with City quite recently, with Ed Aarons of The Guardian reporting before Christmas that City, along with Chelsea, were showing interest in Seri.
Seri, a central midfielder capable of playing a holding role, is renowned for his excellent and accurate passing, and has a remarkable 91.1% pass accuracy this season in Ligue 1 and the Europa League. He is a teammate of former City forward Mario Balotelli at Nice, but is likely to depart the Allianz Riviera soon, possibly even this month.
