Reported Chelsea target Jean Michael Seri is closing in on a move to… Fulham. We’re not joking.
Seri has been continually linked with a move to Chelsea this summer. Arsenal were also thought to be in the running to sign the Ivorian, who came close to signing for Barcelona last summer.
Even with the financial power that Premier League clubs have at their disposal, it would be an incredible coup for a newly-promoted side to sign a player who has been linked with some of the biggest clubs on the planet.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, that’s exactly what’s about to happen. He describes Seri’s proposed move to Fulham as a done deal, meaning that Chelsea have been pipped to the post by their local rivals.
It’s unclear whether our failure to sign Seri was a result of our lack of interest or precarious managerial situation. Either way, he won’t be playing in a Chelsea shirt next season.
