The anticipation amongst the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern is already building ahead of the summer transfer window. With very little to fight for, other than the FA Cup, the attention of most supporters is firmly beyond the end of the current season.
It’s a shame, given how good the Blues were last season, but in the Premier League you can’t take your finger off of the gas even for a second, and that’s exactly what the Chelsea board did last summer.
Slow to react to the improvements being made by the teams around them, Chelsea faltered early on in the season and they’re yet to really recover.
This summer, then, fans are hoping that a few big names will come in as their side looks to rebuild.
One player that has been linked with the Blues over the last day or two, via L’Equipe, is Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri, and it’s fair to say that the Ivorian is a popular man amongst Chelsea circles.
A creative central midfielder, Seri – who is rated at £31.5 million by Transfer Markt – has been the focal point for the Nice first team over the last year or two, regularly creating chances and goals for the Ligue 1 outfit.
The Chelsea fans over on Reddit have been discussing this link over the last day or so, and it’s fair to say that most are behind the idea of a deal. Discussing the topic in two separate threads, one detailing the rumour and another detailing what the Ivorian can do, the response is one of excitement.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
