Jules Koundé of Sevilla will join Chelsea ‘before the end of the month,’ with the search for his replacement already started.

According to Estadio Deportivo, the Spanish team is ‘ready to bid the Frenchman farewell.’

Chelsea are on the lookout for a new centre-back this summer, following the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen to Real Madrid and Barcelona, respectively.

Cesar Azpilicueta may also join the latter, leaving a massive vacuum in Chelsea’s defense that must be filled.

The Blues have been interested in Koundé since last summer, when they attempted to negotiate a move with Sevilla but were unable to agree on a price.

Several reports in the last several weeks have stated that a move to Chelsea is essentially a foregone conclusion.

After selling Diego Carlos to Aston Villa, Sevilla are considering a full reconstruction at the back, according to Estadio.

His departure will be followed by Koundé’s, who ‘will be a Chelsea player’ by the end of June ‘barring a major surprise.’

Thomas Tuchel and his team have yet to make a ‘concrete offer’ for the defender, but they are expected to do so soon, with a deal for €60-65 million being suggested.

Both parties are anticipated to engage in ‘imminent negotiations’ to iron out the details, but the general consensus is that the transfer will take place sooner rather than later.
