Skysport reveals Arsenal are once again being linked with a move for Jean-Michael Seri.

The Gunners were keen on the Ivory Coast star last summer and were heavily tipped to get a deal done for the midfielder.

But Barcelona then came in for the 26-year-old and looked to have wrapped up a move to take him to the Camp Nou.

But the deal broke down at the last minute, leaving Seri devastated, and he returned to France and spent another season with Nice.

The midfielder looks certain to be on his way this summer, however, with Chelsea linked as a possible destination.

But L’Equipe are now reporting that Arsenal are in a ‘strong position’ as the club’s head of football relations Raul Sanllehi has maintained a close relationship with the player’s represenatives.

Sanllehi was director of football at Barcelona last year when Seri, who is said to have a £35 million release clause, was close to joining the Catalan giants.
