After a few seasons of mediocrity, the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to seeing some big progress over the coming weeks and months. Arsene Wenger is leaving the club this summer, and an announcement on a replacement will likely be coming in the next few weeks.
However, it’s likely not just managerial changes that are on the horizon. Whoever comes in will, naturally, want to put their mark on the team, and the club will likely want to bring in a few new faces to freshen things up too.
One player that the Gunners are apparently keen on is Jean Michael Seri. According to Sky Sports News, the Gunners have held initial talks over a potential move for the Ivorian.

A technically gifted midfielder, Seri is fantastic with the ball at his feet – with brilliant passing and dribbling making him a real asset going forward.
For the most part, Arsenal fans have responded pretty positively to the news. They’ve taken to Twitter to discuss Arsenal’s apparent interest, and with many are viewing him as a fantastic potential addition, some are even suggesting that he could replace Aaron Ramsey, among others.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
Jean Michel Seri would be a good buy, but that probably means Ramsey is off. Ramsey is a top class player on his day but his injury record is alarming. Sell him before he goes on a free.

Seri looks a good player can’t be any worse than Ramsey and wilshire and xhaka Jesus

The Seri & Sokratis rumors are interesting. Both are very good on the ball. Two different players, but I’m sensing a theme. #AFC

Hope the rumours of us in talks with Seri are true, would be a class signing and exactly what we need. #AFC

I have been a long term admirer of Seri. A good engine needed in that defenceless midfield. #AFC
