Arsenal target Jean-Michel Seri has issued a come-and-get-me plea to his suitors, as he pushes for a move to the Premier League.
The midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates all summer but it is Barcelona who have been the closest to signing him.
However, the proposed move to Barcelona fell through, leaving the player furious with his club. Despite the disappointment, Seri is still hoping to secure a move before the transfer window closes and he is open to a switch to the Premier League.
“Is the Barca move dead? I want to be optimistic and think that there are still options,” Seri told Spanish outlet, Mundo Deportivo, as quoted by the Daily Cannon.
“Let the two clubs talk quietly again and come to an agreement.
“We are not talking about any club, where you are going to sign for money.
“I want to sign for big European clubs, like Juventus, PSG, Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool.
“For example, Roma, has made several offers.
“I have spoken many times with [Rome director] Monchi and this transfer has not happened either because of economic reasons.
“Monchi got tired of the leaders of Nice!
“Roma was a good choice, but nothing to do with Barca.”
The midfielder is reportedly available for around €40m, which wouldn’t be a problem for Premier League clubs.
Arsenal fell apart on Sunday against Liverpool and one thing that was obvious in that game was the fact that the team needs quality injection, it remains to be seen if Wenger will address that issue by signing Seri.
