Chelsea face Fulham competition for Nice midfielder Seri

Fulham are rivaling Chelsea for Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri.

Sky Sports says Chelsea remain interested in Seri, but will not make a move for the player until their managerial situation is sorted.

The Blues are among a number of clubs keen on the midfielder, who almost joined Barcelona last summer when Raul Sanllehi – now head of football relations at Arsenal – was in charge of recruitment at the Nou Camp.

The Gunners remain interested and fellow London club Fulham are also understood to have made inquiries about Seri, whose £35m release clause expires on July 15.

The 26-year-old's preference is to join a Premier League club in this window, with one year left on his Nice contract.
