Catalan giants Barcelona have made a fresh approach to Ivorian international and OGC Nice central midfielder Jean-Michaël Seri’s entourage in recent hours, according to L’Équipe.
This is Barcelona’s third major approach for Seri in less than 12 months, having made contact with the player’s representatives in November and May, before seeking to go all in for Marco Verratti in Seri’s position.
Those efforts have obviously failed, and logic dictates that Barcelona will now move for Seri, but the Catalan club has yet to make any formal approach to OGC Nice for the player at the time of writing.
Seri has a €40m release agreement with OGC Nice. Arsenal continue to be very interested in the player without making any concrete moves as of yet.
