Arsenal have been handed a massive boost in the race of Nice star winger of Jean-Michael Seri as the club has confirmed their intentions to offload at lest “two” stars before the end of this summer transfer window.
The north London club are hopeful they can negotiate a cheaper deal with Nice as they are not willing to match his £36million release clause.
Rivere told L’Equipe: “There should be three or four more arrivals and two departures.
“We want to finish these as soon as possible but certain cases take more time than others.
“I think we will manage because these last ones should be finalised faster than those from last year.”
However, the Gunners could struggle to get the cut-price deal for Seri they are hoping for with Rivere sticking to his guns over release clause fees.
“People laughed at the release clauses of certain players,” Rivere added.
“But now people realise that they are no joke and that we are in a favourable position when working on these cases.”
Seri made 39 appearances for Nice last term, scoring seven goals and providing nine assists in all competitions.
