Chelsea battle with Arsenal in pursuit of midfielder

Chelsea battle with Arsenal in pursuit of midfielder”

Arsenal are hoping to use their connections to see off competition from Liverpool FC and Manchester United in Nice midfielder Jean-Michael Seri, according to a report.

Arsenal's director of football, Raul Sanllehi, is reportedly leading the negotiations for the Ivory Coast worldwide.

The newspaper says Arsenal are now pushing hardest to get a deal agreed with director of football Raul Sanllehi holding talks with Seri's representatives about a possible £40m move to the Emirates.

The Gunners were interested in Seri last season but Antonio Conte's side are still front-runners to secure the 26-year-old, according to the Mirror.

The £40 million-rated midfielder is also wanted by Chelsea and almost joined Barcelona past year.

Arsenal finished in sixth place in the Premier League table this season to miss out on a place in the Champions League for the second successive season.

There remains an uncertainty over the managerial positions at both Chelsea and Arsenal which could play a part in any negotiations.

Seri would add some energy to Arsenal's side if they can get a deal agreed, however, that may prove hard as the Evening Standard claims the Ivorian would prefer a move to Chelsea. One year down the line, Seri still has a lot of suitors in the transfer market, and it looks very unlikely that he will send another year in Ligue 1.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for their former player Mikel Arteta.

It is understood any deal to bring him to The Emirates will have to happen after a new boss has been appointed at the north London club.
