Transfer Update: Chelsea Are Desperate To Sign €60m-Rated La Liga BEST Defender



The London giants are finding it difficult to raise the €80m necessary to sign Jules Kounde in the summer transfer window.

Instead, Chelsea are set to offer a footballer on their transfer list to Sevilla in order to bring down the €80m price tag for U21 France international, who is also being tailed by Man United and Real Madrid.

Jules has become one of the hottest properties in the transfer market since joining Sevilla from Bordeaux in the summer of 2019. Despite not even completing two years with the Andalusian club, Kounde is already regarded as one of the best centre-backs on show in La Liga.

The 22-year-old centre-back has amassed 81 appearances for Sevilla, even chipping in with 6 goals and 2 assists in those games. The French defender exploits have not gone unnoticed, with the likes of Chelsea, Man United and Real Madrid all hot on his trails.

Blues interest in Jules is only recent but makes a great deal of sense. Thiago Silva, despite the kind of impact he has made, is in the twilight of his career while Antonio Rudiger is facing an uncertain future at the London club, with his deal winding down soon.

As a result, it is prudent for Chelsea to keep their options open, making Kounde a viable target. As for Man United, the Red Devils have been considering a move for the French defender for quite some time now.

Kounde is one of several defenders on Red Devils radar, as they search for a long-term partner for Harry Maguire amid the fitness troubles that have plagued Eric Bailly and even Victor Lindelof.
