The Blues have been open to offering players as makeweights during negotiations for Jules Kounde and there is a possibility of Sevilla accepting a part-exchange bid.

Chelsea have reportedly tabled a £30milion bid to Sevilla for centre-back Jules Kunde and have included Kurt Zouma as part of the deal.

Thomas Tuchel is looking to make his second signing of the summer window as the 22-year-old has emerged as his top target.

The centre-half impressed for the Spanish side last season as he helped them qualify for the Champions League and was called up to France’s squad at Euro 2020 as a result.

Kounde has also caught the attention of Manchester City as well, but it appears the Blues are in pole position to land the highly-rated defender.

As per Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea are close to an agreement with a £30m offer on the table. Contract until June 2026 agreed as Koundé is open to join Chelsea as he wants Champions League football for the next season.

According to Fabrizio, talks are ongoing between the two clubs to find an agreement for Jules Koundé to Chelsea.
