Nice star crops up on Barca radar

Le Championnat

Nice are facing the prospect of losing Jean-Michael Seri in January as Barcelona have been tipped to make a move.

The Ivorian midfielder was a reported target for both Liverpool and Arsenal over the summer but Nice managed to keep hold of the 26-year-old.

Seri was also a rumoured target for Barca in the summer but they focused their efforts on landing Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund as well as a failed move for Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho after Neymar’s move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Reports in Spain indicate the Camp Nou club have accepted Coutinho will not be available in January and will instead concentrate on bringing in Seri from Nice.

The Ligue 1 club will be reluctant to lose the midfielder but are unlikely to stand in his way if a big bid from Barcelona is lodged.
