Chelsea have been stunned in the signing of Jean Michael Seri as Fulham have reportedly overtaken Arsenal and the Blues in signing the Ivory-coast international, according to Sky Sports.
Seri is one of the hottest properties in world football with a cluster of top clubs keeping tabs on his performances at Nice.
Barcelona tried to buy the 26-year-old midfielder last year, while Chelsea and Arsenal have been credited with a strong interest in him this summer.
Manager Slavisa Jokanovic has pulled out all the stops to land the 26-year-old in a reported £17.7m deal.
Seri was spotted in London over the weekend, with speculation over a Premier League switch ramping up as a consequence.
Di Marzio, who has forged a reputation as a transfer insider, says the Ivory Coast international is on his way to Fulham.
“#Seri from @ogcnice to @FulhamFC: deal done *tick emoticon* @SkySport @SkySportsNews,” wrote the Sky Sport Italia reporter on Twitter.
Seri scored seven goals and nine assists as he helped his side to seal a place in the Champions League play-offs last term.
