Chelsea are leading the chase for Nice’s influential midfielder Jean Michael Seri but the 26-year-old midfielder won’t join until Chelsea’s managerial situation is resolved according to a report on Daily Mail.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is reportedly set to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season with Luis Enrique, Laurent Blanc, Max Allegri among the names likely to replace him.
Seri is a key summer target for Chelsea but any move for the midfielder won’t happen until a new boss is in place.
Seri almost joined Barcelona last summer but they pulled out at the last minute.
Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City have all reportedly sent scouts to watch Seri play in Ligue 1 but Chelsea lead the race for the £35million-rated midfielder.
