French international defender Jules Kounde has been linked with a move away from Sevilla in recent weeks.

According to the latest reports, Chelsea are interested in signing the 23-year-old centre-back, and the player is keen on an exit as well.

The Frenchman has been outstanding for Sevilla over the last couple of seasons, and he has the potential to develop into a world-class defender in future.

Chelsea have lost players like Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen this summer, and they will be desperate to bring in a quality defender before the new season begins.

The Blues will have to agree on a fee with Sevilla now. Personal terms with the player should not be a problem for them.

The opportunity to join a big club like Chelsea will be a tempting proposition for the French international. Furthermore, the Blues will be able to offer him Champions League football next season as well.

Chelsea will be desperate to challenge for the Premier League title and the Champions League trophy next season. They will need to bring in more than one quality defender to challenge clubs like Manchester City.

The likes of Cesar Azpilicueta and Thiago Silva are also in their twilight years, and Thomas Tuchel needs more than one quality centre-half.

Kounde has the attributes to succeed in English football, and he should be able to settle in quickly and make an immediate impact. He has shown his quality in Spain already, and he will be desperate to prove himself in England now.
