Sevilla president Jose Castro has reiterated that Jules Kounde will only be sold if his valuation is met in full.
The France international has been regularly linked with Chelsea and Manchester United in the past and supposedly remains a target for both clubs.
Chelsea are said to have been reluctant to trigger Kounde’s £68m release clause in the summer transfer window, with Sevilla refusing to negotiate.
Kounde still has two-and-a-half years to run on his deal at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, where he has spent three seasons, and the La Liga side are remaining firm on their stance.
“We’re not going to change our position,” Castro said. “If the proposal we receive is out of market, we will sell our players to sign new ones.”
Former Bordeaux defender Kounde has made 101 appearances for Sevilla in all competitions and has six senior caps for France.
