With Jack Wilshere’s future at Arsenal very uncertain at the moment, and the worry that Aaron Ramsey is yet to commit to a contract extension, it is very likely that Arsenal will be looking for a dominant central midfielder this summer, especially as Granit Xhaka has failed to really make his mark as the player we all hoped he would be.
Sky report that they ‘understand’ that Jean Michael Seri is set to be Arsenal’s top target and they explain clearly why this is happening. The report said:
Seri has a £35m release clause in his contract and almost joined Barcelona last summer – when Arsenal’s head of football operations Raul Sanllehi was working at the Nou Camp.
And Emery tried to sign Seri in January for Paris Saint Germain, but concerns over Financial Fair Play Rules meant the French club opted to bring in Lassana Diarra on a free transfer instead.
So he is obviously very highly regarded by the new Arsenal setup, and if you take a look at this video by Scouting Nation you can see why the Ivory Coast international is coveted by such star studded teams like Barcelona and PSG….
So what do you think? Could he be our new Santi Cazorla?
