Chelsea in advanced talks with Ligue 1 midfield star
Chelsea are reportedly in advanced talks with Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri ahead of a potential summer move.
The Ivorian midfielder has been impressive in Ligue 1 for the past few years but it looks as though he could finally be on the move this summer.
While it looked as though he could be on his way to Arsenal at some points this summer, reports are now suggesting that Chelsea are in advanced talks with the player over a move to Stamford Bridge.
Talks are likely to continue but the next step will be trying to agree a fee with Nice for the player and making sure whichever manager that comes in actually wants the player before completing a deal.

Antonio Conte took charge of Chelsea training this morning as confusion over his position remains, with no movement on his sacking and not much news on a potential move for Maurizio Sarri.
The latest news suggested that he was expecting to take over but the longer this goes on, the more in doubt it could become.
That means that Seri could still go elsewhere but regardless, Chelsea have made the first move the player and he could be on his way to London.
