Reports: West Ham in race to sign £27m-rated midfielder

According to reports, West Ham United are reported among top club interested in signing Jean-Michael Seri from OGC Nice this summer.

The Ivory Coast international has emerged as a target for some of top European clubs and according to a report from the Daily Mirror, the Hammers are one of the interested clubs seeking to sign the player.

Seri has long been with a move to the Premier League club and speculation is making a new momentum, with several outlets claiming English clubs are considering a summer swoop for the player.

Seri enjoyed yet another impressive season with Nice in Ligue 1 last season and it comes as no surprise to see some top host clubs throwing their hats into the ring for his signature this summer.

The enigmatic midfielder is likely to favour a move to a club that will guarantee him regular playing time and more importantly European football competition next season, which is likely to to hinder the Hammers chances of signing him this summer.

However, if the reports from the Daily Mirror bears fruit, the Hammers are among reported three Premier League club said to be considering a move for the £27m-rated, with the duo of Manchester City and Arsenal very keen on signing him this summer.
