ARSENAL, Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain are set to battle it out for £20million-rated Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri this summer.
The Ivory Coast ace, 25, has been in sensational form for the Ligue 1 side this season, scoring six goals, while adding nine assists.
Seri has been a key figure as Nice have mounted an unlikely title charge this season – sitting just three points behind PSG and six behind Monaco.

The south coast club even beat the Parisian giants 3-1 on Sunday – with boss Unai Emery reportedly impressed with Seri’s performance.
However, he is set for competition from both North London Premier League sides – Arsenal and Tottenham – as well as La Liga leaders Barcelona.
Seri won't come cheap though, as the Ivorian has two years still to run on his current contract in Nice and a release fee clause of £33m.
Last week, the midfielder claimed he would only leave Nice if he was given assurances he would be a guaranteed starter.
Seri claimed: “There are a lot of clubs that follow me. But there is nothing done.
“If I leave, it will be to join a club where there is a real desire to play football as in Nice.
"And I’m not going to be on the bench, I’m leaving only if I know I’m going to play.”
With Mesut Ozil edging towards a move potential move away from Arsenal and the future of Marco Verratti at PSG very much up in the air, that gives those two clubs the early advantage.
Should the Gunners fail in their quest, they may turn back to Guinea midfielder Naby Keita - with the 22-year-old stalling on a new deal at RB Leipzig.
They face competition from Liverpool and Bayern Munich for the £25m-rated star.
