According to trade expert Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, Sevilla is willing to sell Jules Kounde, who is a Chelsea target, for a bargain price during the summer transfer window. This revelation would be a huge boost for the English club, which are looking to strengthen its defense ahead of the next season.
The Blues have been after Kounde for a long time and have kept him as their top priority even now. Thomas Tuchel has requested that the club obtain the services of the center-back, and it appears that they have finally made a breakthrough. This is due to the Spanish club’s willingness to sell its star player for a reduced price.
In his current deal, Kounde has an €80 million release clause, but the La Liga club is willing to part ways with him for €65 million. However, the West London club has yet to make an opening bid, so it is unclear whether they would act in response to this recent development.
Accept the offer!
Under Tuchel, the defense has always been the cornerstone of our success, allowing us to win several trophies in a short period of time. As a result, the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen have given a severe blow to our defensive line heading into the new season.
Furthermore, Cesar Azpilicueta may depart Stamford Bridge, adding to our defensive problems at the present. At the same time, we must plan for the future, especially because Thiago Silva’s playing career is coming to an end.
Trevoh Chalobah had a breakout season with us the previous season, but Malang Sarr is still not ready to take on a bigger role. Levi Colwill, on the other hand, may benefit from some loan time with another Premier League club rather than being forced into our system right away.
Kounde, who has been one of Spain’s greatest central defenders in recent years, would be a huge help to our defense right now. We’ve already covered a lot of territory in our quest to achieve a personal accord with the 23-year-old. Romano has claimed that conversations are currently in their final stages, which is fantastic news.
