Chelsea FC are eyeing a potential deal to sign Manchester United striker Anthony Martial and Nice midfielder Jean Seri in the summer transfer window, according to a report in England.

The Daily Express is reporting that the Blues have identified Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, France international Martial and versatile midfielder Seri as key targets.

The same article states that Chelsea FC are working on the deals despite uncertainty surrounding Antonio Conte’s long-term future at the west London club.

Naturally, potential signings will be reluctant to commit to the Blues with their manager’s situation unclear amid speculation linking Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri with the role.

According to the same story, Chelsea FC will inform the representatives of Lewandowski, Martial and Serri of their intentions by the end of June.

Chelsea FC will need an overhaul this summer after the Blues finished in fifth place in the Premier League table to miss out on a Champions League spot.

The Blues lost 1-0 to Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley last month after Eden Hazard scored the winner from the penalty spot.

The west London side haven’t won the Champions League since 2012 when the Blues beat Bayern Munich on penalties.
