Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing the Sevilla defender Jules Kounde this summer.

The highly-rated French international has been outstanding for the Spanish club this past season, and he could prove to be a quality acquisition for the Londoners.

Kounde has been linked with number of Premier League clubs recently. Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United of Premier League as well as Barcelona are in pursuit of 22-year-old defender.

Tottenham will have to improve defensively this summer, and Jules Conde will be an upgrade on the likes of Davinson Sanchez. The Colombian has been linked with a move away from Spurs, and Kounde could be his replacement. 

According to reports, the Premier League side are keen on signing one or two defenders this summer, And Joachim Andersen is also on their transfer wish list.

The Danish international was on loan at Fulham this past season, and his performances caught the attention of Spurs. 

Jules Kounde is highly rated across Europe, and he has a release clause of €80 million. However, Sevilla are open to letting him leave for less than that this summer.

Meanwhile, Tottenham are yet to appoint a long-term replacement for Jose Mourinho. It will be interesting to see if they can sort out their managerial situation as soon as possible.

It seems highly unlikely that they will sign players without appointing a manager first, and it remains to be seen how the situation unfolds in the coming days.

They have been linked with the likes of Nuno Espirito Santo recently. The former Wolves manager is apparently in talks with the London club regarding their managerial vacancy.
