We have an update to bring you in Chelsea’s reported pursuit of OGC Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri.
Seri was first linked with a move to Chelsea several months ago, but the move has not progressed since that time.
You’d think if our interest was genuine we’d have the deal tied up by now. However, there appears to be something standing in our way.
According to Sky Sports, it’s the uncertainty surrounding our managerial situation, with Antonio Conte poised to leave the club after two-years in charge.
Until a new manager is appointed, it’s unlikely that Seri will be moving to Stamford Bridge any time soon.
By the time Maurizio Sarri gets in the door, it may already be too late. Sky Sports believe he could be off to Napoli.
It’s claimed his agent will fly to Italy next week for talks with Sarri’s former employers. The Ivorian is thought to have a £35M release clause in his contract.
Chelsea may be forced to look elsewhere as a result of our continuous dithering.
