Liverpool are closing in on a deal to sign Nice midfielder Jean Seri in a £20.5m in the summer transfer window, according to reports in Italy.

Italian website TransferMarketWeb is reporting that the Reds have turned their attention to the Ivory Coast midfielder after exhausting their attempts to sign RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita.

The same article states that the Merseyside outfit have made an approach to sign the 26-year-old Nice star, who only has two years left on his current deal with the Ligue 1 side.

According to the website, Liverpool are on the brink of concluding their fourth summer signing as Jurgen Klopp looks to improve his midfield options for the 2017-18 season.

The club’s fans will be hoping that the Reds can swiftly seal the transfer given Seri is attracting interest from Arsenal, Everton, Swansea City and Tottenham Hotspur.

Liverpool have signed AS Roma winger Mohamed Salah, Chelsea teenager Dominic Solanke and Hull City defender Andy Robertson in the summer transfer window so far.

The Reds are being tipped to rekindle their interest in RB Leipzig midfielder Keita next summer when a clause in his contract means the African will be available to sign in a £48m deal.
