Chelsea battle with Arsenal in pursuit of midfielder

Barcelona also attempted to lure Seri to the Nou Camp last summer but a deal could not be struck and he remained with Lucien Favre's side.

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.

Seri has been an integral part of the Nice team over the past couple of seasons to attract interest from a number of top European clubs.

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.

Seri is an Ivory Coast global with 18 caps.

And with Arsene Wenger's successor but to be named, plans for subsequent season could also be affected.

Chelsea, too, are in need of improving their squad considerably after a below par 2017-18 campaign, and midfield is rightly an area of concern.

Seri could be the answer to our midfield struggles.

If the report is anything to go by, Chelsea are now leading Arsenal in the player's pursuit, even though the Gunners are in talks with Nice over a possible move.

The only thing that appears certain is that whoever lands Seri will have to pay around £40 million - a fair price considering the current market conditions.

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.
