Tottenham and Arsenal target Jean Michael Seri is ready to finalize his switch to Barcelona. In England, the agent of Chelsea target Antonio Candreva has insisted that his client is not interested in leaving Inter Milan this summer. In Italy, Italian giants AS Roma are the only serious contenders to land Juan Cuadrado.

Barcelona close in on Seri

According to Independent, OGC Nice star Jean Michael Seri is on the verge of joining Barcelona, amid interest from Tottenham and Arsenal. The Catalan giants have been chasing Liverpool's Phillipe Coutinho this summer but appear to have given up the chase to sign the player, with Liverpool standing “firm” over Coutinho's future at the club.

And now, Barcelona have shifted their attention to OGC Nice star player. Jean Michael Seri is set to sign a long-term contract with Barca in a deal worth $40m. The deal is said to be 90 percent done. Both Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal previously held an interest in the 26-year-old midfielder but were apparently not able to force through a deal for the Ivory Coast international.

Candreva his staying at Inter Milan, says Agent

According to Goal US, Antonio Candreva's agent has insisted his client is not leaving Inter Milan, amid interest from Chelsea.

It has also been rumored Inter Milan are ready to sell him at the right price this summer, but the midfielder's agent, Federico Pastorello stressed that the 30-year-old wants to continue with Inter this season. Federico Pastorello said: “Candreva believes that he'll stay at Inter Milan this season. His desires are to continue at the club and Luciano Spalletti (Inter Milan head coach) have also said the same, So, this season he'll remain at the club, but in January Chelsea may come for him.” Antonio Candreva, 30, is reportedly one of Chelsea's top summer transfer target but the Premier League champions are believed to be ready to make a move for him in the final week of the summer window.

Cuadrado wanted by AS Roma

Serie A giants AS Roma are extensively linked with Juventus' Juan Cuadrado, according to Football Italia. Juventus are said to have agreed to sign the Colombia international permanently after securing the Serie A trophy last term but his stay at the club may well be short-lived. AS Roma are searching for a replacement for Mohamed Salah, who joined Liverpool last month, and they had also set their sights on Leicester City midfielder Riyad Mahrez. Juan Cuadrado, 29, endured a “nightmare” spell at Chelsea a few season ago and has since failed to “rediscover” his top form at Juventus.
