Manchester City are could reportedly switch their attentions to Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri this summer, but fans would much rather sign Mateo Kovacic.
The Ivory Coast international, who has gone from strength to strength with French side Nice over the last couple of seasons, could be yet another alternative to Jorginho.
The move for Jorginho is thought to be hanging in the balance, as Napoli’s hunt for a replacement (Lucas Torreira) is stalling over wage demands.
Real Madrid’s Kovacic has been mentioned as a possible alternative to the Italian, and it now seems Seri is on that list as well.
Jorginho is certainly the best of the three targets, but it’s a close call between Seri and Kovacic.
The 26 year-old Seri has been delivering consistent performances for two seasons now, while Kovacic has had to fight the likes of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos for playing time.
That said, the Croatian has a huge amount of potential, and fans clearly agree, as they are bashing the latest links to Seri. You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
