Nice and Ivory Coast midfielder Jean-Michael Seri could yet sign for Barcelona, with the La Liga club set to revive their interest in the January transfer window.
Seri almost joined the Spanish giants last month after they agreed a deal with his French club for a €40m move.
However, the Catalans pulled the plug and instead focused their energy on trying to sign primary target Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool – a transfer which they never managed to complete.
According to Spanish outlet Sport, Barca remain admirers of the Elephants player and will make another effort to secure his services in Europe’s winter window.
Seri, 26, recently emphasised that he has put the failed transfer behind him and is fully focused on performing for Nice in Ligue 1 and the UEFA Europa League.
The midfielder is set to feature in their opening Europa League group stage match against Zulte Waregem this evening.
