Chelsea are keen on signing Sevilla defender Jules Kounde and have offered Kurt Zouma plus cash for the France international.
However, Chelsea’s opening bid was rebuffed by Sevilla, who would prefer a straight cash offer and value their 22-year-old defender much closer to his £68m release clause.
The report claims Sevilla are big admirers of Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen and could be tempted into entertaining a player-plus-cash swap deal if the Danish centre-back is included.
According to The Athletic, Sevilla are interested in Zouma and would prefer another Chelsea player to be added to the deal for Kounde.
Jules Kounde to Chelsea ws getting closer to being done. There is still some details to be sorted out. We have not been told how much Chelsea have offered to Sevilla. But Chelsea were confident that a deal will be completed soon.
Kounde is no small signing, he's one of the very best in his position and is in no way a bad or even average buy, he's a great buy, and as has been started earlier, his signing doesn't affect the signing of those other positions.
Kounde would be a good signing. He's one of the best in his position and facilitates a back 2. Chelsea already have 3 CB's either out of or in their last year in 2022.
