Chelsea look all set to complete the signing of Sevilla star Jules Kounde – fans have been told
Now that Antonio Rudiger is leaving the club to sign with Spanish giants Real Madrid – it will mean that Thomas Tuchel will need to sign an immediate replacement for the German star ?
Kounde is a man that has been on the radar of the club for some time now as The Blues missed out on the Frenchman’s signature last year after the LaLiga outfit raised their asking price at the last minute.
But Chelsea have retained their interest in the player as Thomas Tuchel looks to finally secure his services – And according to Spanish outlet ABC Sevilla, we are hopeful they can reach an agreement between £43million-£51m
It is already believed that personal terms has been agreed with the player and the club are just trying to negotiate that fee between the two clubs – as Sevilla are playing hard-ball
But fans have now been told that the club look all set to complete the deal for the Frenchman – Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano tweeted: “Jules Kounde deal, still priority for Chelsea. Tuchel wants him.
“Talks are well advanced on player side, while Sevilla are still waiting to receive the opening bid for the French centre-back.
“Price tag will be around €65m [£55m], less than €80m [£68m] release clause.”
