Arsenal hold Seri talks

Arsenal have held talks with Nice midfielder Jean-Michael Seri - but are set to be beaten to his signature by Chelsea.

The Gunners were among the sides to try and sign Seri last summer, along with Barcelona, but he stayed put in France.

Another impressive term has seen the 26-year-old valued at around £40million - and it is the Blues who are in pole position to secure his services.

Eighteen-cap Ivory Coast international Seri made 30 appearances in Ligue 1 this term, scoring two goals as Nice finished sixth in the French top flight.

He arrived at Nice from Pacos de Ferreira in 2015 having begun his career in his native country with ASEC Mimosas.

Neither Chelsea or Arsenal will play in the Champions League next season and both clubs have uncertainty surrounding the manager's position.
