Chelsea face competition for Seri as Fulham join race


Reports from Sky Sports suggest that Chelsea are still interested in Nice star Jean Michael Seri, but will not make a move for the midfielder till the managerial situation at the club is sorted out.

However, newly promoted Premier League side and London club Fulham have made inquiries for Seri who currently has a release clause of £35m that expires on July 15.

Seri reportedly prefers a move to the Premier League this summer, as he has just a year remaining in his contract with Nice. Manchester City have also been keeping tabs on Seri, although their priority remains Napoli’s Jorginho, with talks of his switch to the Etihad reportedly ongoing.

According to the report, Seri fits the box-to-box-midfielder bill at Fulham, as they would want him to compete with Stefan Johansen.
