Manchester City have joined the race to sign Jean-Michael Seri

Europe’s biggest clubs are closely monitoring the Nice star with Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Liverpool all showing an interest.

And Mundo Deportivo believe the Premier League leaders are ready to steal a march by holding talks.

Seri’s current contract expires in the summer of 2019 so the Ligue 1 side will be keen to cash in either this month or at the end of the season or risk losing him for nothing.

Nice were holding out for around £35million in the summer but clubs know his value will continue to drop as his contract comes closer to the end.

The report claims that the deal has no impact on whether Alexis Sanchez gets his dream move to the Etihad.

Guardiola wants another strong midfielder to fill the void of Yaya Toure who is braced to leave the club.

Seri is thought to be favouring a move to the Nou Camp after club legend Xavi Hernandez claimed he would be a perfect fit for Barcelona.

Nice snapped him up in 2015 for around £750,000, with Seri appearing in almost every Ligue 1 match since.
