Chelsea are discussing with Sevilla to sign their centre-back Jules Kounde. However, it seems like Sevilla cannot wait any longer for Chelsea to meet their demands. 

Speaking to 90 Min, Sevilla had previously been demanding a fee close to the France international’s release fee, which is €80m. it was reduced to €60m in recent weeks to take chances with possible suitors. Sevilla set a deadline until July 5 for Chelsea if they are still interested in buying Kounde. 

Sevilla are also open to other clubs to match the same bid price. Barcelona are eyeing the 23-year-old star. Considering his age and potential, Xavi thinks Kounde can be a good investment. Although Jules Kounde‘s desire to move to London could also be a deciding factor. He had come close to joining the Blues last summer.

In his first season at Sevilla, he helped the club with the UEFA Europa League for a record sixth time and was named in the competition’s team of the season.
