Barcelona has reportedly agreed on terms with Nice over the January signing of Jean Michael Seri after missing out on the midfielder during the summer.

Seri had been linked with a summer switch to the Nou Camp, however, the move was scrapped with Barcelona focusing on trying to land Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain ace Angel Di Maria.

Barcelona could not reach an agreement with the Ligue 1 outfit sides, however, leading to Seri hitting out at Nice chiefs for denying him his dream move to perennial champions.

It later emerged that the Catalans was to blame for the botched deal, though, having initially agreed to buy the26-year-old for £36.8m.

According to Spanish outlet Sport, Barcelona will get their man when the transfer window reopens in January after a new agreement was reached.

Seri has featured three times for Nice in Ligue 1 this season, claiming one assist so far.
