Jean-Michael Seri Nice Ligue 1
The Serie A side are expected to lodge a third and improved bid for the 25-year-old midfielder

Midfielder Jean Michael Seri has reportedly agreed terms with AS Roma to join them on a five-year deal from Ligue 1 side Nice

French radio station RMC reports that the Ivorian international has agreed to a provisional contract with the Italian side after his representatives spent the weekend in Rome.

Roma have previously had offers of €15 million and €25 million rejected by Les Aiglons, who are demanding €40 million for the player. But a third bid of €35 million is expected to get the deal done and see Arsenal miss out on one of their transfer targets.

The news of the 25-year-old's proposed move to Italy will not only come as a blow to Arsene Wenger's men only but also to Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain who were also reportedly eyeing the former Pacos de Ferreira man.

It is believed that Seri will be Mohamed Salah's replacement at the Serie A runners-up which should leave the Egyptian clear to conclude his move to Liverpool.
