Napoli hope to seal midfielder deal but player keen to move to Premier League amid Chelsea interest


Chelsea have been linked to Jean Michael Serri this summer, more than any other player and if reports from France are to be believed, the Nice midfielder is on his way to Stamford Bridge.

The Ivory Coast international has looked a class act for Nice for the last couple of years and was heavily linked with a move to Barcelona last summer, only for negotiations to break down in the last minute, as reported by the Express.

He has attracted other top clubs including Italian giants AS Roma and Premier League side Arsenal but Chelsea remain the favorite to land him.

According to L’Equipe in France via TalkSport, Napoli have made a move to sign him if Jorginho moves to Manchester City this summer but Serri is keen to make a move to the Premier League instead of the Serie A.

The report says Serri is well aware of the interest from Chelsea and Arsenal and is willing to wait out for a contract from either side before making a decision on his future.
