Arsenal manager Unai Emery is a big fan of Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Gunners are interested in a potential deal to sign the Ivory Coast international in the summer transfer window.

The same article states that Arsene Wenger’s replacement Emery is a huge admirer of the versatile midfielder following his stint at Paris Saint-Germain.

However, the north London side are thought to be facing competition from Premier League rivals Chelsea FC and Manchester City for Seri.

According to the same story, Arsenal want to sign Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini on a free transfer in the current transfer market.

The Gunners have already signed Switzerland international Stephan Lichtsteiner in a free transfer from Serie A giants Juventus earlier this month.

Arsenal finished in sixth spot in the Premier League table last season to miss out on Champions League football for the second successive season.

The Gunners lost 3-0 to Premier League champions Manchester City in the League Cup final at Wembley last term to end Wenger’s reign without silverware.

The north London side crashed out of the Europa League at the semi-final stage following a 2-1 loss to Atletico Madrid.
