There is still the ongoing transfer sage between Arsenal and the Monaco and France winger Thomas Lemar to be resolved before the end of the summer transfer window and many people in the football media think that Arsene Wenger will either get his man finally or get another player in who is similar, such as Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City.
After that, however, there does not seem to be much on the cards for Arsenal fans to get excited about in terms of new players coming in to north London, or at least that seemed to be the case until this week when a number of Arsenal transfer rumours popped up concerning another possible signing from a French club.
This time it is Nice and the player in question is Jean Michael Seri, a pocket dynamo of a central midfielder who could be our own N’Golo Kante if the report by ESPN is correct. The 26-year old Ivory Coast international was a major factor in Nice finishing third in the French league and earning a chance to qualify for the Champions League and that could be one of the factors in whether we can secure his transfer or not.
Another is that some reports claim that our north London rivals Tottenham are also after Seri, but with Coquelin having picked up an ankle injury that could see him miss around two months of the season, is Wenger going to make sure Seri signs for Arsenal and completes his summer transfer jigsaw?
