More information Sevilla calls reports that Barcelona has agreed a deal to sign Jules Kounde “completely false.” Barcelona was said to be close to signing the France defender, but Sevilla denied the rumour. Chelsea are interested in signing Kounde after missing out on him last summer. The Blues have agreed a fee in the region of £55 million for the 23-year-old. They appeared to have beaten Barca to his signature. However, Spanish football reporter Gerard Romero claimed on Saturday morning that Barcelona had gone back in for Kounde and that a deal had been agreed in principle. Romero stated that there was a “99 percent” chance that the deal would be completed and Kounde would join Barcelona. Sevilla, on the other hand, has since responded.

Kounde has been with Sevilla since his arrival from Bordeaux in 2019. In just three seasons, he has made 133 appearances for the club. He has 11 France caps after making his senior debut last year. Tuchel has stated that he hopes to sign at least one more defender this summer. He has already signed Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli for around £34 million. However, the contract expirations of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leave Tuchel short at the back. Captain Cesar Azpilicueta wants to join Barca as well. Tuchel, on the other hand, is unsure whether to grant him his wish. “It’s a tough question because I’m not sure if I want to give Azpi what he wants,” Tuchel said. It comes down to what we want at some point.” Chelsea has a captain who is a Spanish international. I see him as being on the same level as me, but Barcelona does not. So I’m not sure I want to give him what he wants because he’s such a big player.” Articles Related to Chelsea’s transfer plans may be jeopardized if six stars are not sold.
