Chelsea working to sign €60m-rated star, personal terms already agreed

Jules Kounde

Chelsea are working to reach a transfer agreement for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde, reputed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano claims.

The Blues are looking for a new centre-back this summer, and Kounde has emerged as their leading target.

They recently proposed a part-exchange deal worth €35m with Kurt Zouma moving the other way.

The proposal was rejected by the La Liga giants, who prefer to negotiate a straight-cash deal.

The Blues are still negotiating for the 22-year-old, and are keen on landing his services.

Kounde is valued at around €60m by Transfermarkt. He was linked with Tottenham Hotspur last month.

Spurs agreed a part-exchange deal involving Davinson Sanchez, but the move fell through.

Kounde rejected them due to the lack of Champions League football.

He has now agreed terms over a long-term deal with the Blues, and a deal could be finalised soon.

The Blues have had a quiet transfer window with Marcus Bettinelli being the sole signing.

There could be frantic activity in the coming weeks with a striker and centre-back among the priorities.
