The Mirror are reporting that Manchester United are the favourites to sign Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri.
Another tabloid the Sun have suggested that Chelsea, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain were the three clubs pursuing the Ivorian international, but it seems that United are the team in pole position, with Liverpool also joining the chase.
Seri has eighteen months left on his contract with Nice, and has a release clause worth €40m (£35m). The playmaker is said to be keen on a move to the Premier League, and it looks as though he will have a choice of four English clubs.
The 26 year old has not been in great form this season with just one goal and five assists in 25 matches. However, he was one of the stand out players for Nice last season as the French club finished third in Ligue One, losing just four league games all campaign.
