The Everton, Southampton and Leicester fans in the Transfer Tavern were all excitedly discussing the possibility of signing Jean Michael Seri after news in the French media broke earlier of their reported interest.
OGC Nice midfielder Jean Seri is one of the top performers in the French top division this season with some impressive box to box displays from central midfield.
His eye catching performances have kept Nice in the title race in Ligue 1 – they currently sit in third place behind Monaco and PSG.
Seri’s terrific season has not gone unnoticed with Everton, Southampton and Leicester all interested in the Ivory Coast international, who reportedly has a €40 million buy out clause in his current deal.
Nice are desperate to keep their best players, though, and will be happy with the answer he gave when asked about his future.
In an interview with local paper Nice Matin, as reported via le10 Sport, the 25-year-old – who has played 34 times for Nice this season – said that he is very happy and settled at the club and would not think about leaving this summer.
Our landlord is disappointed by this news because he thinks that Seri is an exciting talent that he would like to see in the Premier League.
