France Football magazine are reporting Nice could sell Jean Michael Seri if a club can meet their €20million asking price.

The French publication reports that Arsenal, Tottenham, Paris Saint-Germain and Roma are the four clubs interested in the Ivorian international but no team has yet met the Ligue One side’s valuation of the player.

Le10 Sport had reported last week an offer of €20million from Roma for Seri had been made but according to France Football the offer was €15million and Nice turned down the bid as they are holding out for their stated price.

Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivere has confirmed in recent months that Seri has a €40million buyout clause in his contract, commenting that the club will wait for a team to meet the release fee, but it seems they are prepared to sell for a lot less.

Seri was outstanding in Ligue One last campaign, scoring seven goals and providing nine assists in 34 league games. With Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger seeking to strengthen his central midfield options this summer, Seri may well be considered if France Football are correct in regards to the asking price.
