Chelsea FC have been informed by Robert Lewandowski and Jean Michael Seri that they won’t sign for the Blues until the managerial situation is resolved at Stamford Bridge, according to a report.

The Times, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Poland international and Ivory Coast midfielder are reluctant to commit to the west London side given the uncertainty surrounding Antonio Conte’s future.

The same article states Chelsea FC face competition from Arsenal and Napoli to sign the African midfielder in the summer transfer window after another impressive campaign at Nice.

According to the same story, Lewandowski is thought to be concerned about the Chelsea FC managerial saga and the Poland international is hesitant about signing for the Blues.

The Times goes on to reveal that the Blues are still working hard to appoint Maurizio Sarri as Conte’s replacement even though the former Juventus boss remains in position at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last term but the Blues won the FA Cup final thanks to the west London side’s 1-0 win against Manchester United at Wembley.
