Although we are getting conflicting reports about Arsenal’s pursuit of Thomas Lemar, the latest rumours are saying that we have turned our attention to the Nice midfielder Jean-Michel Seri, who is although thought to be a target for our great rivals Tottenham.
And now the Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivère has announced that the club are looking to offload two players so that they can get funds in to pay for their new targets for next season, and he expects the deals to be confirmed quite quickly. “There should be three or four more arrivals, and two departures,’ Rivere told L’Equipe.
“We want to finish these as soon as possible, but certain cases take more time than others.
“I think we will manage, because these last ones should be finalised faster than those from last year.”
I seriously hope that he is talking about Arsenal, as I much prefer the idea of bringing in a 26 year-old proven performer than a 21 year-old who would be arriving on the back of just one good season in Ligue 1, especially as Monaco are demanding ridiculous prices for all their players, while Seri’s release clause is just 36m euros…
Who would you rather we went for?
