Arsenal 'to rival Manchester United and Liverpool for Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri this summer'
Arsene Wenger has been compared to a Death Row inmate following a shocking performance in the Carabao Cup final
Arsenal are set to rival Manchester United and Liverpool for Jean Michael Seri, according to reports.
Seri can leave Ligue 1 side Nice for just £35million in the summer, as per his release clause, and has been attracting interest from suitors all over Europe.
Barcelona are also in the race, but United were thought to be leading the hunt for his signature.
However, The Sun claim that Seri is now a target for Arsenal - and Arsene Wenger will try and sign the Ivory Coast international in the morning.
Arsenal have reportedly already enquired about the all-action midfielder and could be seen as a potential replacement for Granit Xhaka, who has not impressed since his 2016 move.
Morgan compares Wenger to 'Death Row inmate'
Arsenal fan Piers Morgan has hit out at Arsenal's 'pathetic' performance in the Carabao Cup, has called for Arsene Wenger to stand down.
The Gunners were battered by Pep Guardiola's swashbuckling Manchester City side, who won the final 3-0 at Wembley Stadium.
Sergio Aguero opened the scoring for the Citizens in the first half before Vincent Kompany and David Silva put the game to bed after the break.
Arsenal have now lost six of their eight EFL Cup finals, including each of their last three, and the trophy remains the only domestic accolade Wenger has failed to win with the club.
In the end, it turned into one of the most one-sided Wembley cup finals of all time.
It was a timely reminder of just how far Manchester City are ahead of Arsenal.
The sorry truth was that City did not even need to be at their very best to embarrass and overrun Arsenal .
If Pep Guardiola’s first trophy signals the start of a new era of success at the Etihad then this defeat should also signal the beginning of the end for Arsene Wenger .
