Chelsea's pursuit of Golovin throws Seri deal into doubt

  Chelsea's pursuit of Golovin throws Seri deal into doubt Chelsea are unlikely to pursue a deal for OGC Nice star Jean Seri if they are able to secure the signing of Aleksandr Golovin this summer, according to claims from the Telegraph. The Blues are deep in negotiations with CSKA Moscow as they look to land Russian international Golovin in a deal believed to be worth £27m. Chelsea want to strengthen their depth in midfield this summer and had been linked with a move for Seri, who enjoyed yet another successful season at Nice last term. A host of Premier League clubs have been linked with respective moves for Seri but according to the Telegraph, Chelsea are likely to end their interest in the player if a deal can be reached for Golovin. It’s stated in the report that Chelsea have observed similarities between Golovin and Real Madrid star Luka Modric, helping to convince them of his qualities as they chase a big summer deal for the rising star.

Fulham join Chelsea in Seri pursuit

  Fulham join Chelsea in Seri pursuit Chelsea are bracing themselves for competition from Premier League new boys Fulham in the race to sign Jean Michael Seri. West London Sport reports that the Cottages are keen to strengthen their midfield this summer and have earmarked Seri. Lille’s Yves Bissouma is also thought to be on their radar should they get priced out of a deal for the Nice midfielder. Slavisa Jokanovic wants to bring in a player who can compete with Stefan Johansen, as the Whites prepare for their first season back in the top flight. The 26-year-old midfielder is being tipped to leave the Ligue 1 side after seeing a move to Barcelona fall through last summer. Seri has a £35 million release clause in his current deal but the report does state that it expires in the middle of July. Arsenal and West Ham have also been credited with an interest in the player previously, but it is yet to be seen how serious their pursuit is.

Fulham have also confirmed the signing of Seri ’s former Nice team-mate, the 28-year-old “He’s been at the very top of our target list for a long time,” said Tony Khan, the Fulham sporting director. Meanwhile, Newcastle United have re- signed the Chelsea winger Kenedy on a season-long loan.

The midfielder was a key part of the Nice midfield last season, making 29 appearances as Nice went on to finish eighth in Ligue 1 last season.

Seri has opted to play regularly in the Premier League for Fulham, rather than a move to Chelsea.
