Man City and Liverpool to challenge Barcelona bid

Jean Michael Seri GETTY Nice star Jean Michael Seri is attracting interest from Europe's elite
Hannah Rogers | 07 December, 2017, 23:26

According to the latest reports, the Nice midfielder is wanted by the Ligue 1 leaders, as well as the Premier League sides that have been linked to him.

Liverpool have reportedly joined Barcelona and PSG in the race to sign midfielder Jean Michael Seri.

A move to the Camp Nou is now unlikely after Nice president Jean-Pierre Riviere accused Barca of "messing up" Seri by failing to complete a move, while the player himself quashed talk of a move away in January.

Scouts from City and Liverpool are both said to have watched the 26-year-old extensively this season with a view to making an offer for the player either next month or in the summer.

Paris Saint-Germain could yet enter the fray, while Arsenal were also credited with an interest in Seri, an global teammate of Yaya Touré and current club teammate of Mario Balotelli, but didn't follow up with a formal bid.

Liverpool were mainly interested in signing Naby Keita in the summer transfer window and then ended up securing a deal for the Guinean worldwide, who will eventually join next summer.

Seri is fully fit after missing a month of the season through injury and will play a crucial role for Nice as they look to climb the Ligue 1 table.
