Jean Michael Seri has again been linked with Arsenal.
The midfielder enjoyed an excellent campaign for Nice and only Thomas Lemar – another Gunners other target – managed more assists in Ligue 1.
According to L’Equipe, Nice have agreed to let the 26-year-old leave for €40m this summer. Roma were keen to finalise a deal, but couldn’t meet the release clause.
Arsenal, meanwhile, are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign Thomas from Monaco.
It’s been reported that Monaco were initially demanding £80m for the France international but are hopeful that they can sign the midfielder for around £45m.
