Chelsea are confident of signing Jules Kounde transfer amid Barcelona links.

According to the Evening Standard, the Blues remain in the driving seat in pursuit of Sevilla defender Jules Kounde. He has been linked with Barcelona which has caused concerns of a potential hijack amongst the Chelsea faithful.

The West Londoners have been courting Kounde for almost a year now. They have already agreed to personal terms with the defender last year. The transfer didn’t go through due to Sevilla raising their valuation, to which Chelsea didn’t oblige.

Sevilla are open to leaving the 23-year-old this summer. Sevilla president Jose Castro has admitted to the same and made the club’s stance very clear by saying, “This happened last year and he will only be sold if the offer is the one that the club deems enough and acceptable so that he can leave, as we have always done.”

Kounde is currently recovering from surgery on a minor pelvis issue. The same issue forced him off at half-time while he was playing for France in their Nations League defeat to Croatia at home.

Given Chelsea’s current defensive crisis, the West London club are more than likely to oblige by the end of the window and it does seem like a matter of when and not if.
