Sevilla Make Final Decision On Jules Kounde After Receiving Counter Offer From Barcelona Amid Chelsea Interest

Barcelona are pushing to steal another deal from the claws of Chelsea as they submit offer for Jules Kounde

Chelsea are hoping to finally land their long term target, Jules Kounde this summer but a strong contest from Barcelona could serve as a stumbling block.

The Blues are keen on their interest to land Kounde but formalities have kept the deal hanging since last two seasons.

With the arrival of new ownership who are eager to kickstart their era with excellent results, Chelsea are now closer than ever on their pursuit to land Kounde.

Chelsea already have tabled a €55m bid to Sevilla after reaching 5-year agreement with the Frenchman.

Meanwhile, Barcelona have also come in from behind to steal the deal but it won’t be as easy as it seems.

The Catalans had succeeded in their last attempt when they snatched a deal for Raphinha despite Chelsea already reaching agreement with Leeds United.

Sevilla being a La Liga side will be a major decision factor in the sale of Jules Kounde as the club would be careful not to sell him to a rival side.

With this in check and their discussion with Chelsea already in place, Sevilla have disclosed that they are only interested in finalizing the deal with Chelsea and have not opened any negotiation with Barcelona.

Sevilla believes Barcelona can not match the offer tabled by Chelsea and as such won’t waste the time to entertaining their bid.

Jules Kounde is happy with Chelsea and is already seeing himself in the club as he sets to become the third signing of the current summer.
