Manchester United should swoop to sign Jean Michael Seri from Nice this summer, ESPN FC pundit Alejandro Moreno has claimed.

The Red Devils are in second place in the Premier League table but a staggering 16 points adrift of leaders Manchester City.

Manchester United’s club record signing Paul Pogba has struggled to shine in the middle of the park under Jose Mourinho.

Seri has attracted a lot of interest from the Premier League over the past 12 months or so following his impressive performances for Nice.

The 26-year-old has scored one goal and has made four assists in 23 appearances in Ligue 1 this term.

Arsenal and Manchester City have been linked with a potential swoop to sign the Ivory Coast international in the summer.

ESPN FC pundit Moreno believes Seri would be a great addition to the Manchester United team.

“If you are Manchester United, you need this type of player more so than Manchester City,” Moreno told ESPN FC.

“For that reason, I think Manchester United will make a run at Seri.”

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term.

However, the Red Devils secured their spot in the Champions League thanks to their Europa League triumph win over Ajax.
