are looking to significantly improve their ranks after missing out on football for the second season in a row but face a fight on the market to secure their prime targets.

The Daily Mirror reports that have revived their interest in OGC Nice midfielder Jean-Michel Seri and have already held talks about signing the 26-year-old this summer, although are stated to be ahead in the race.

Seri, said to be valued at £40m, has attracted plenty of attention during the past two years and was linked with a move to the Stadium last summer, where were also reported to be close to a deal.

However, despite the LaLiga winners looking to have ended their pursuit of the Ivory Coast international, are also pushing ahead in the chase for Seri’s signature as they also look to significantly improve their ranks.

Like Arsenal, are without football next season but their transfer balance is unlikely to have been hit as heavily as due to Roman Abramovich’s extremely deep pockets.
