Chelsea prepare £83million double swoop to deal potential blow to Manchester United and Arsenal

According to British media reports, West London giants Chelsea are allegedly making midfielder Jean Seri and forward Anthony Martial two of their top targets for the summer window as they try to lure a new tactician into replacing Italian boss Antonio Conte.

Although Chelsea could still end this campaign on a high note with an Emirates FA Cup final win over rivals Manchester United this coming weekend, things have not gone as planned at the West London club this season.

As such, the Daily Mail claims that the former Italy boss is highly likely to leave Stamford Bridge for a new manager, with Spaniard Luis Enrique and Italian Maurizio Sarri among those leading the race to take over.

Their report includes that the Blues could present Nice ace Seri and Red Devils attacker Anthony Martial to their next coach as the footballers among their top transfer targets ahead of next term.

North London side Arsenal are also keen on Seri, as per the Mail, and this has been followed up by a recent report by the Daily Mirror linking the Ivorian international with a possible £40million transfer to the Emirates Stadium.

France international Anthony Martial, meanwhile, could depart Old Trafford if they receive a fee in the region of £43million, as per Calciomercato, though it remains to be known if they could charge even more to an English Premier League rival.

Calciomercato also linked Serie A champions Juventus as possible suitors for the French youngster, who remains a highly rated youngster and one Manchester United might not want to risk permitting a transfer to Premier League giants Chelsea, where he could play more constantly and eventually fulfill the enormous potential he showed earlier in his playing career.
