Manchester City and Liverpool are reportedly set to battle for OGC Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri.
English news outlet Daily Mail has claimed that the Ivorian is open to a Premier League switch after his dream switch to Barcelona fell through last summer when Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivere rejected a £35.2m offer from the Spanish giants.
Seri, who was rumoured to have been angered by the failed move, is believed to be keen on leaving the Ligue 1 up-and-comers in the upcoming transfer window or next summer - a development that has put City boss Pep Guardiola and Liverpool chief Jurgen Klopp on high alert.
The midfield maestro is said to be looking for a bigger challenge to help take his career to the next level and would undoubtedly be a good addition to any top side on account of his undeniable on-pitch prowess and impeccable work ethic.
