Nice have rejected an offer from Roma for Arsenal and Tottenham target Jean-Michael Seri, according to reports in France.
The midfielder is one of the most wanted men ahead of the summer transfer window after starring in Ligue 1 over the past 12 months.
Both Arsenal and Tottenham are fans of the 25-year-old, while recent reports have linked Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain with him too.
Roma are interested in Seri but, according to RMC, their opening offer has been rejected by Nice.
The Italian side are said to have offered around £17.5m for the Ivorian, who has a release-clause of around double that.
Roma’s bid was deemed too low by Nice and the Serie A club will have to return with a new offer quickly if they want to win the race for Seri.
