Kounde’s beautiful goal in the Copa del Rey
Chelsea is facing the risk of parting out a series of key stars in the defense at the end of this season, because the contracts of Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta are about to expire, while negotiations on a new contract. still no progress.
In case the worst case happens, the Stamford Bridge team needs to plan to recruit more defenders to avoid falling into a crisis. For that reason, recently, many sources believe that the Blues are closely following the Jules Kounde deal.
In fact, coach Thomas Tuchel once offered to recruit the star of the Sevilla staff last summer. However, the disagreement over the transfer fee between the two sides caused the plan to fall apart.
Despite this, with Kounde’s constant progress, the London representative decided to continue pursuing him.
Goal newspaper quoted Express as saying that Barcelona also wants to compete with Chelsea in this deal. But the advantage is completely in favor of the English team, because Kounde has just flatly rejected an offer from the La Liga giants and expressed his desire to move to the Premier League next season.
Thus, if Chelsea can offer a price enough to convince Sevilla, they will almost certainly own the versatile French defender when the 2022 summer market opens.
