Reported £92m double move for Jean Michaël Seri and Piotr Zielinski would transform Arsenal into Premier League contenders

Seri / Zielinski

Unai Emery is reportedly looking to strengthen his midfield options at Arsenal this summer.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, Arsenal are lining up a £35 million summer swoop for Nice ace Jean Michaël Seri, as Unai Emery looks to make his first signing at the Emirates.

Midfield is obviously an area where the new Gunners boss wants to improve, with £57 million-rated Napoli ace Piotr Zielinski also on Arsenal's wish-list, according to the Mirror.

The north London outfit would likely have to sell in order to sign both players, but if they do find a way of making a double deal happen, they would surely be instantly transformed into Premier League contenders.

Seri is an energetic box-to-box midfielder, with similar qualities to Chelsea's N'Golo Kante, but if anything he is actually more productive in the final third than the France international.

The 26-year-old has chipped in with two goals and 10 assists in 43 appearances in all competitions for Nice so far this season, and he has been a constant driving force for his side.

Zielinski, meanwhile, is a deep-lying midfielder, but is also a wonderfully talented technician, with excellent ball dispersion abilities.

The Poland international lining up alongside Seri in the middle of the park is a tantalising prospect for Arsenal fans, and for a combined cost of £92 million, it is surely one that the Gunners quite simply must make happen this summer.
