Arsenal are on the verge of missing out on Nice midfielder Jean-Michel Seri, as Barcelona are closes in on his signature.
The 26 year old midfielder is reportedly a top target of Arsenal but Wenger is yet to make a concrete bid for the midfielder.
According to a report in the Daily Cannon, Seri is now edging closer to a move to Barcelona.
The report claims the midfielder’s move to the Camp Nou is 90% done.
BarceloNa are determined to strengthen their squad and are now set to add Seri to their star-studded midfield.
It’s being claimed the midfielder is considered as a replacement for Andres Iniesta, who is already in the twilight of his career. Barcelona have been working on a replacement for the Spaniard for sometime and it was in November they identified Seri as a potential replacement.
However, the Côte d’ivoire international wasn’t their first choice, they wanted Philippe Coutinho but Liverpool are reluctant to sell, forcing them to turn their attention to Seri.
Gooners had been hoping Seri would be the much needed successor to Santi Cazorla but Barcelona’s interest means we will have to continue our search for a successor to the Spaniard.
Arsenal will be disappointed to lose out on a talented player like Seri but it was only going to be difficult to compete with a club who just received £200m from Neymar’s sale.
