Liverpool & Man Utd In Battle To Sign £35m Midfield Star

By on March 7, 2018

The transfer window is closed but managers are working hard on their plans for the summer so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Barcelona are back in for Jean-Michael Seri…

Liverpool and Manchester United will have to battle with Barcelona if they want to sign £35m Nice midfielder Jean-Michael Seri this summer, according to a report by TeamTalk.

Seri has developed in to one of the best all-round midfielders in French football since joining Nice from Pacos de Ferreira in 2015 while he’s also now a regular with the Ivory Coast national team.

The 26-year-old’s impressive form has attracted interest from all over Europe and Seri was reportedly close to joining Barcelona last summer before they opted to sign Paulinho instead.

The midfielder has also caught the attention of clubs here in England as TeamTalk claim that Liverpool and Manchester United are both showing a keen interest in signing Seri ahead of the summer window.

Jurgen Klopp is in the market for another midfielder as Emre Can is being tipped to join Juventus when his contract expires in June and Seri has emerged as a prime target for the Liverpool boss.

Jose Mourinho is also expected to sign at least one new midfielder this summer as Michael Carrick is set to retire while Marouane Fellaini’s contract runs out in June and the United boss is also eyeing Seri.

However, it looks like the Premier League duo will now face stiff competition as TeamTalk are citing a report from the Express that claims Barca are set to renew their interest in signing the Ivorian star.

The Catalans are reportedly looking for someone to help ease the load on Sergio Busquets and Seri has been identified as the man for the job so Barca are ready to try and lure him to the Nou Camp this summer.

We’ll have to wait and see how things develop but the report says Seri is available for just £35m due to a release clause in his contract and I think he’d be a bargain if United or Liverpool were able to win the race for his signature.
