Jean Michael Seri would prefer a move to Serie A club Napoli over the Premier League, according to the Nice midfielder's agent.

Ivory Coast international Seri has impressed during his time in Ligue 1, with a proposed move to LaLiga heavyweights Barcelona falling through in August 2017.

Seri remained at Nice, making a total of 43 appearances across all competitions last term - scoring twice and recording 10 assists.

He now looks set to leave the French club, however, and his agent Franklin Mala claimed Napoli is the ideal destination for the 26-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Chelsea, but insisted last season's Serie A runners-up must act swiftly.

"We hope to have positive news from Naples in the next few hours," Mala told CalcioNapoli24 on Thursday.

"There's been informal contact with Napoli, but still no step forward. We're ready to meet Napoli.

"Napoli are in pole position, Seri prefers Naples to anywhere else. Napoli need to speed up in every way to close the deal.

"His €40million release clause expires on July 15, so they have to pay it by that date. After July 15, Nice can ask for any amount.

"There are two Premier League teams in for Seri but I can't say anything else."

West Ham target Seri wants Champions League football .
Jean-Michael Seri is reportedly keen to play Champions League football next season, casting doubts over a potential move to West Ham. According to Get French Football News, a move to the London Stadium is unlikely, but not out of the question. The Hammers have been tentatively linked with a move to West Ham this summer, but the player is also wanted by Napoli and Chelsea. Seri’s agent has reportedly held talks with Napoli, with Carlo Ancelotti keen to secure the player’s signature this summer. Chelsea have also been heavily linked with a move for the Ivorian midfielder. The Blues have reportedly held preliminary talks over a deal, but they will also be unable to offer Champions League football. Chelsea are in the Europa League for the upcoming season, but could still secure a deal for the player. The report from France suggests that a deal for West Ham could happen if Seri is unable to secure a move elsewhere before the end of the window.
