Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri has distanced himself from reports that he is on the verge of a £36.7m move to Barcelona.
The Ivory Coast midfielder – previously linked with Liverpool – is said to be a Barcelona target after they gave up on Philippe Coutinho.
Seri recorded an assist in Nice’s 2-0 win over Guingamp this weekend and then said: “I’m not in contact with anyone.
“I focus on what I have to do. If my agents and Barcelona see each other and talk, I don’t know anything about that.
“If it happens, it happens. I’m still a Nice player today, and we’ll see what happens later.”
