Kounde transfer plans ‘in place’, say reports
Chelsea have “put in place” plans to sign Sevilla centre-back Jules Kounde after reaching a verbal agreement, according to reports.
The Blues are set to lose Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen for FREE this summer to Real Madrid and Barcelona.
And according to Goal, Chelsea have put plans in place to sign long-term target Kounde from Sevilla as soon as Todd Boehly’s takeover is completed and sanctions end.
The 23-year-old has a verbal agreement in place for a move this summer and wants a move to Stamford Bridge after talks collapsed last summer.
Sevilla are also said to be keen to do a deal as early as possible to allow them to sign a replacement.
The LaLiga outfit want a fee or around £59million for the France international, who can play both centrally and at right-back.
