Chelsea Plot £35Million Jean Michael Seri Transfer

Chelsea have lined up a £35million summer move for Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri.

The Blues have identified the 26-year-old Ivory Coast star as one of their top transfer targets as they look to rebuild their squad after failing to retain their Premier League crown.

Seri is likely to hold out until he knows who will be be Chelsea boss next season, with title-winner Antonio Conte almost certain to leave after two years in charge.

Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City have all looked at Seri, who has become one of Europe’s hottest properties.

Spanish giants Barcelona made a £35m move last summer that Nice knocked back, despite Seri wanting to move to the Nou Camp.

Chelsea are now trying to steal a march this year by making early approaches, but may face competition.
