The agent of Jean-Michael Seri has spoken out about his client’s future as Arsenal and Chelsea battle to sign the Ivory Coast international.
Seri, 26, has developed into one of Nice’s stand-out players since signing from Portuguese outfit Pacos de Ferreira in 2015.

‘It’s true that there are possibilities in England, so we’ll see,’ he told Sport Witness. ‘But [new Napoli manager] Carlo Ancelotti has a strong image and is very respected by the players he’s managed, which can be a decisive factor for Seri. ‘Basically, he works via his emotions.
