Outside Stamford Bridge

Chelsea transfer target Jean Michael Seri is thought to be in London today ahead of a summer departure from OGC Nice.

If you’d told us a year ago that Seri would still be playing at the¬†Allianz Riviera this summer, we’d have struggled to believe you.

The Ivorian was heavily linked to both Arsenal and Barcelona last summer. However, for whatever reason, neither of the moves came to fruition.

This summer appears different. Seri seems more willing to force through a departure from Nice. In fact, he’s even gone as far as travelling to London to get a deal done.

That’s according to French journalist Nabil Djellit, as reported by the Daily Star. Djellit claims that Seri is in the capital city amid interest from both Chelsea and Arsenal.

There have been suggestions that Seri would be unwilling to join Chelsea without knowing who will be managing him next term. We may be about to find out how true that is.
