Kounde attracting Premier League interest
Jules Kounde has been honing his craft with Sevilla for nearly two years now.
The 22-year-old joined the Spanish outfit in the summer of 2019 from Ligue 1 side, Bordeaux.
Sevilla are understood to have paid around £22.5m to bring the stopper to the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan stadium.
He went on to feature 40 times during 2019/20, playing a key role in the club’s Europa League triumph.
Kounde then racked up a further 49 appearances across all competitions in 2020/21.
And, amid a host of consistently impressive displays, the stopper has inevitably been linked with some top sides of late.
Manchester City were tipped to move for the youngster during the delayed summer window.
Chelsea & Arsenal eyeing Kounde
Kounde, for his part, recently suggested that he could be open to leaving Sevilla this summer:
“I may have to change clubs this summer. I have not decided anything.”
Now, a fresh update on Kounde’s transfer situation has emerged in Spain.
It is claimed that the Premier League is the most feasible destination for the stopper due to the high figures his sale would entail. That figure is said to be around €60-€70m.
In terms of clubs interested in signing the Frenchman, it is claimed that Arsenal and Chelsea are the sides who ‘sound the loudest’ for Kounde.
Sevilla won’t sell Jules Kounde for less than 60m this summer despite the player wanting to move to a bigger club. The truth is at the moment Arsenal and Chelsea are the most interested and Arsenal want him to be the ‘leader of the defense’ https://t.co/p2aOKI1SHA
