Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivere has stated that coveted midfielder Jean Michael Seri will not be sold when the January transfer window opens. The 26-year-old was close to a move to Barcelona in the summer before the deal broke down at the last minute. The Catalans have since signed midfielder Paulinho and seem content with their options in the engine room this season.
Arsenal and Tottenham, however, remain interested according to reports.

Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka has been the familiar partnership of late, but Seri would be an improvement on either player. .......Read more here.....

According to Mundo Deportivo, Arsenal have no clubs standing in their way for Jean-Michael Seri’s signature.

Latest reports say the duo are no longer in the running.
Seri made 34 Ligue 1 appearances last season, contributing 16 goals. He’s said to have a £36m release clause, a price Arsenal don’t appear keen to match, but the Londoners do have a need for a creative midfielder given Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere are currently out injured. .......Read more here.....
