Chelsea transfer target Jean Michael Seri is reportedly in London, claims French journalist Nabil Djellit via Daily Express.
Chelsea are reportedly interested in the 26-year-old Nice midfielder, who is also attracting interest from Arsenal.
“Info: Jean-Michael Seri is in London… Pending departure, for reminder, he is in contact with Arsenal, Chelsea… [More] to follow,” wrote Djellit on Twitter.
Chelsea must make a move for the midfielder before July 15 after his agent Franklin Mala revealed last month that his release clause of £35million expires on July 15.
Sky Sports have also reported Seri has not travelled with the rest of Nice squad for the club’s pre-season training camp.
“The €40m (£35m) termination clause expires on July 15, so you have to pay it by this date,” said Mala. “After July 15, Nice can ask for any amount.
“Arsenal? No, I do not want to talk about it. There are two teams of the Premier [League] on Seri.
“I cannot say anything else. Image rights are not an obstacle.”
