Earlier report today is claiming Ivory Coast international and Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri, who had earlier been linked with Arsenal this summer, has arrived London ahead of finalizing his medicals at Chelsea’s Cobham training complex for his medicals.
Seri, who has been referred to as the new “Yaya Toure”, have been trending transfer speculations this summer having tried to force a move from Nice last summer, but Chelsea’s acquisition of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco saw the player remain at Nice.
Nice, however, are not going to stand in his way when he seeks transfer this summer but his suitors would have meet their £35million release clause in his contract.

Seri was in great performance for Nice last season but appear to be wanting a move away to the Premier League.
Chelsea’s interest in finalizing contract talks for Seri still cast doubts in mind of their supporters when looking at the array of players they have in the rank.
With Paris Saint-Germain eyeing a move for N’Golo Kante this summer, it could be well said Chelsea are prepare to offload the defensive midfielder by securing the signing of Seri as his replacement. Either way, the outcome of Seri’s business in London will be revealed on or before end of this present week.
