Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri has been strongly linked with a move to Chelsea this summer, and reports claim the Ivorian could be Chelsea’s first signing of the summer.
However, Seri is reportedly put off by the prospect of joining Chelsea until the future of manager Antonio Conte has been resolved.
Reports claim Seri is wary of moving to Stamford Bridge while the managerial situation is so unclear.
Seri is clearly not ready to commit to a move to Chelsea until he knows who will be in charge.
Signing the 26-year-old will be a good move for Chelsea as his dynamism, distribution and creativity would give Chelsea’s midfield a new edge, and deploying him alongside N’Golo Kante might just be what Chelsea need for a perfect season.
