Chelsea Confirm the Signing of Another La Liga star Player | SEE DETAILS

According to Manu Sainz of the Spanish media source AS a deal between Chelsea and Sevilla for center-back Jules Kounde is now extremely near to completion.

Chelsea is now said to have prevailed over Barcelona, who were both interested in hiring the France international defender. The player was spoken to by Barcelona manager Xavi in an effort to convince him.

When Chelsea looked to bolster our defense last summer, the French defender—who has a £68 million release clause—was a priority target for the Blues.
Todd Boehly’s arrival, however, caused Chelsea to shift its focus to other defensive targets like Nathan Ake and Matthijs de Ligt of Juventus.

However, because of the impasse over Ake between the Blues and Manchester City and De Ligt’s eagerness to go with Bayern Munich, Chelsea moved fast to outbid Barcelona for the France defender.

Chelsea was unable to recruit Kounde last summer because they declined to match Sevilla’s £68 million release clause.

Kounde is now expected to sign with Chelsea this week, with one stark exception.
