Sevilla have reportedly received an offer from Chelsea for Jules Kounde, according to reports. According to AS, Chelsea have made an offer in the region of £47 million as they seek to complete their third summer acquisition.
According to reports, Thomas Tuchel is looking to replace Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen in the center of his defense this season with up to three new center-backs.
They've already brought in Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly, a Senegalese international who is eager to start training with his new colleagues.
There are signs that Kounde will be the source of their next round of international reinforcements. There have been numerous reports about Manchester United's interest in the Frenchman over the past year, and the two parties were close to an agreement last summer.
While the Blues are attempting to outbid Barcelona, the Catalans have begun to make their interest in the 23-year-old known, according to the Spanish publication AS.
Although Sevilla have not yet responded to the offer, it is expected that he will be joining Chelsea at the beginning of next season.
Sid Lowe, a respected Spanish football analyst, calls Kounde a "great footballer" for his development as a center-back over the last few years.
If Tuchel decides to switch to a four-back formation, Koulibaly and Reece James might establish a formidable partnership, while still allowing Ben Chilwell and Reece James to shine.
