Arsenal are believed to already be in contact with Seri's representatives ahead of a potential move to the Emirates.
However, with the Ivory Coast global maintaining his level of performances, the suitors have only ended up increasing in his pursuit. London rivals Chelsea are also interested in the midfielder who is rated at around £40m and almost signed for Barcelona last summer and are monitoring developments.
There stays an uncertainty over the managerial positions at each Chelsea and Arsenal which might play a component in any negotiations.

However, their efforts could be to of no avail, with Chelsea claimed by the Mirror to be at the front of the queue in the race to sign Seri. He is expected to cost £40million in the transfer market.
He has been a mainstay within the Good staff once more this time period, beginning 30 video games in Ligue 1 and chipping in with two targets, although his function is primarily as a defensive midfielder.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for their former player Mikel Arteta.
