PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are ready to follow up their epic capture of Neymar with a tilt for Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri.

The 26-year-old would cost the Catalans £36 million, the price of his release clause.

The French side have already been splashing the cash this summer after bringing in Brazil forward Neymar.

According to the story, Arsenal were hoping to sign the Nice star in a cut-price deal if the Ligue 1 side failed to make it to the Champions League group stage.

He should be a great fit at the Camp Nou, where passing is a vital component of the tactics, and he would have plenty of opportunities to pick out full-backs bombing down the wing.

Despite several clubs being keen, it is Arsenal who are suggested to be serious players in the chase, but the Gunners have been slow to take action and PSG believe they can leave Arsene Wenger's men trailing by moving soon for Seri.

The Gunners are looking to secure a return to the Champions League this season after a fifth-place finish behind Liverpool last term.

Bramall―who made headlines by rising from non-league football and working a factory job at Bentley Motor to playing for Arsenal, per the Sun's Adam Newson―is in need of consistent playing time to continue his development.

The choice of Sparta would be peculiar, but it might not be a bad idea to let Brammall develop away from the British media and expose him to a different culture and kind of football.
