Chelsea have been strongly linked with Nice midfielder Jean-Michaël Seri, and reports claim that Chelsea chiefs see him as a good midfield partner for N’Golo Kante and are ready to sign him without the appointment of a new manager.
Arsenal and West Ham are also interested in the Ivorian, and his agent has revealed that Seri’s release clause expires on July 15.
His agent Franklin Mala told Radio CRC: “Seri’s clause is €40m and it is valid until 15th July. After that Nice can demand any amount they want.”
The 26-year-old has a contract with Nice until the summer of 2018, but he is keen on leaving the French club this summer.
