The report also states that no transfer fee has yet been agreed for the midfielder, who is also wanted by Arsenal.

Seri was the standout performer at Nice last season as he helped his side to seal a place in the Champions League play-offs.

A potential switch to the Nou Camp fell through last summer at the last minute as the Catalans opted to move for Paulinho instead.
