Revealed: 77% of Chelsea fans want to dump Seri chase for Kovacic

Chelsea fans have been discussing their midfield targets ahead of the new season, and the vast majority want to dump the chase for Jean Seri and sign themselves a superstar instead.

Chelsea have been heavily linked with a move for Nice midfielder Seri for quite some time, with recent reports claiming the Blues will battle it out with their London rivals to sign the 26 year-old.

However, other reports have claimed Seri wants Champions League football at all costs, so the Blues could do themselves a favour by switching their attentions to Real Madrid’s Mateo Kovacic.

The 24 year-old is a superstar in the making, but has asked to leave the Spanish giants after growing frustrated with the lack of first team opportunities.

Kovacic is already a superior player to Seri despite being two years younger, and he is the type of signing that would tell the rest of the big six that the Blues don’t plan on staying outside the top four for even a minute.

Once described as “a mixture of Kaka and (Clarence) Seedorf,” the 43-cap Croatian is valued at £27m by Transfermarkt, and fans are hoping they ditch the Seri race and go catch themselves a bigger fish.
