Chelsea are in advanced talks to land Jean Michael Seri, according to reports.
The Nice midfielder has been in demand since last summer, where Arsenal, Manchester United and Barcelona were all interested.
But he finally looks set to move, as RTL report that Chelsea are in the latter stages of securing a deal for the sought-after star.
A move for Seri will reportedly go through despite the doubts surrounding the managerial situation at Stamford Bridge.
The only stumbling block for Chelsea appears to be that Borussia Dortmund have joined the chase for Seri’s signature in the past few days.
