Transfer News: Kounde Would Cost £68 million- Sevilla

Chelsea would have to spend £68 million for Jules Kounde if they want to sign him before the transfer market closes tonight, according to Sevilla sporting director Ramon Rodriguez Verdejo.

The Blues approached the defender about a move to Chelsea at the end of last month, and the two teams agreed on personal terms.

Chelsea, on the other hand, placed Kounde’s signing on hold as they concentrated their attention on signing Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku for a club-record fee of £97.5 million.

According to reports, the Blues had a verbal agreement to purchase the Sevilla midfielder for £43 million plus add-ons. Sevilla, on the other hand, upped their asking price over the weekend after seeing Chelsea’s desperation.

And now in a deadline day press conference, Sevilla Sporting director, Ramon Rodriguez Verdejo, revealed that Kounde would be released only if his buyout clause is met.

He said and i quote;

“The only offer from Chelsea for Kounde was last Wednesday for an amount we didn’t like,” he said.

Despite the fact that Kounde is a long-term objective, Chelsea is unlikely to pay Sevilla’s asking price in the last hours of the transfer season.

If Chelsea fails to sign the defender before the transfer window ends, Thomas Tuchel’s centre-back choices will be Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger, and Trevoh Chalobah.
