Jean-Michel Seri’s agent urges Napoli to buy the Nice midfielder - ‘they’re in pole position, we hope to receive positive news in the next few hours’.
The Ivorian has been linked with both Arsenal and Chelsea, but it appears he’d prefer a move to Serie A.
“We hope to have positive news from Naples in the next few hours,” Franklin Mala told CalcioNapoli24.
“There’s been informal contact with Napoli, but still no step forward from [Aurelio] De Laurentiis’ club. We’re ready to meet Napoli.
“Napoli are in pole position, Seri prefers Naples to anywhere else. Napoli need to speed up in every way to close the deal.
“His €40m release clause expires on July 15, so they have to pay it by that date. After July 15, Nice can ask for any amount.
“There are two Premier League teams in for Seri but I can’t say anything else.
“Image rights? Not a problem.”
