Chelsea ‘need to sell before they can buy Jules Kounde’

Chelsea ‘need to sell before they can buy Jules Kounde’

Chelsea reportedly need to offload two players before they can sign Sevilla‘s Jules Kounde.

The Blues have allegedly identified Kounde as their leading centre-back target, with the Frenchman expected to be allowed to leave Estadio Ramon this year.

According to Fichajes, Chelsea are determined to sign the 23-year-old but will have to offload two players to afford the defender, with Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner potentially leaving the club.

Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have also been linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge, with head coach Thomas Tuchel looking to trim his squad for the remainder of the 2021-22 campaign.

Kounde has also been linked with a move to Manchester United, but Chelsea are said to be firmly at the head of the queue for the centre-back.

Tuchel has also allegedly made the decision to drop Romelu Lukaku from the squad for Sunday’s clash with Liverpool after a recent interview from the Belgium international.
