OGC Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri says they will play counter-attacking football against Italian giants SCC Napoli on Wednesday.

French Ligue 1 outfit Nice are scheduled to face Italian Serie A side Napoli in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League final round play-off first-leg clash in Naples.

Seri, who was instrumental for Nice as they finished third in Ligue 1 last season and qualified for the Champions League, stated that Napoli are a good team.

“They are a very good team, with very good players," Seri told the club's official website"

"I don’t know yet how we will play, but we will try to work to see if we can counter them and frustrate them.”

The Ivorian international was one of the most outstanding players in the Ligue 1 last season scoring seven goals in 34 appearances for Nice.

Seri, a former ASEC Mimosas player, has been linked with English side Arsenal FC and Spanish giants FC Barcelona during the current Transfer Window.

English giants Liverpool have reportedly joined the race to sign Seri, who was named in the 2016/17 Ligue 1 Team of the Season.
