GETTY Arsenal and Chelsea star Jean Michael Seri has not travelled to Nice's training camp

It was claimed last month [Sky Sports] that West Ham were interested in the Ivorian midfielder, whose release clause is around £35 million.

According to Sky Sports News, the likes of Chelsea and Fulham could be in the running for the 26-year-old after he decided against travelling with his Nice teammates for the pre-season camp.

French journalist Nabil Djellit has now suggested that former Barcelona target Seri is currently in the English capital, but it remains unclear which of the two London clubs he will opt for.

Seri has not joined his Nice team-mates for their pre-season training camp, leading to suggestions that he could be set to finalise a move away.

The Ivory Coast star was reportedly available for around £20million and recently Chelsea FC looked like winning the race for the player who had also been linked with Manchester United and Arsenal.

Arsenal have been actively looking to bolster their midfield options ahead of next season, with Uruguay worldwide Lucas Torreira set to join the club from Sampdoria.

Seri is no stranger to speculation linking him with the Premier League and the Nice midfielder has been touted as a target for a number of top-flight clubs over the last few transfer windows.
