Arsenal could still have a chance of landing Jean Seri this summer – despite suggestions Barcelona are set to sign the midfielder.
A deal between the Spanish club and Nice was said to be imminent for the Ivory Coast star, with some reports claiming a £33 million transfer could go through by the end of the week.
But the latest reports from across the Channel state the deal has not been done and that the French side are far from happy with the way Barcelona have acted during the negotiations process.
Nice are now said to be demanding money and a player in exchange for the 26-year-old, who is set to play for the Ligue 1 outfit this evening in the second leg of their Champions League qualifier against Napoil.
Meanwhile, Jack Wilshere has laughed off the red card he received during Arsenal’s Under-23s clash with Manchester City on Monday night.
The England international was dismissed in the second half after reacting badly to a late challenge at the Emirates.
Wilshere was fouled by Matt Smith and responded by shoving the City youngster to the floor. A brawl then kicked off, ending with the Arsenal man and Tyreke Wilson being sent off.
