Chelsea lead Arsenal in Jean Michael Seri pursuit

Chelsea battle with Arsenal in pursuit of midfielder

Arsenal are in negotiations with Jean Michael Seri but Chelsea remain in pole position to sign the Nice midfielder. According to the London Evening Standard, Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea are all thought to be considering moved for Seri ahead of the summer transfer window.

Sky Sports claims that the Gunners have already held discussions with the representatives of Seri regarding a summer move.

Seri has been a standout performer for Nice over the course of the last two seasons and has been continuously linked with a move to the Premier League. His exploits had brought forth interest from a number of top clubs across Europe, including Barcelona, Arsenal and others.

Arsenal's director of football, Raul Sanllehi, is reportedly leading the negotiations for the Ivory Coast global.

The Ivorian central midfielder made 42 appearances in all competitions for the French side this season, with a closing Ligue 1 match against Lyon set for Sunday, and has scored six goals along with five assists so far.

Mikel Arteta is the favourite to replace his former manager, though he looks like missing out on Seri to Chelsea and both sides prepare for an improved campaign.

If either side are to land the midfielder this summer, though, they will need to cough up a considerable sum. Tiemoue Bakayoko has only just started showing some signs of the potential that would ideally make him a long term solution in midfield, but he is still some way off the required levels. It now remains to be seen if Arsenal can do anything to usurp Chelsea in pursuit of the 26-year-old, or if the Blues succeed in signing him.
