Fulham beat Chelsea to sign Ivory Coast star Seri
July 13, 2018

London: Ivory Coast international Jean Michael Seri signed for Fulham on Thursday, chosing the Premier League new boys over Chelsea and German side Borussia Dortmund.

The 26-year-old midfielder signed a four-year contract — with the option of a further year — with Fulham paying Ligue 1 side Nice a reported £25million ($33million, 28.2million euros).

The transfer is subject to international clearance and a work permit for the 16-times capped Seri.

Seri was swayed by the promise of regular first team football and Chelsea’s case was not helped by being still in a state of flux over the status of manager Antonio Conte, who has taken charge of training this week even though the belief persists that former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri is to replace him. Seri will be joined at Fulham by a familiar face as 28-year-old French defender Maxime Le Marchand also signed from Nice for a fee believed to be £10million, subject to Premier League, FA, and international clearance.
