With the likes of Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta could all walk away from the Stamford Bridge for free when their contracts expires in the summer, reports now have it that the Blues are currently closing in on a deal to sign France international centre back Joules Kounde.
As the club is potentially set to part ways with three important first-team players, the Blues are reportedly targeting replacements with experience of playing at the top of European football. This has led to them to keep on looking at the prospect of bringing the impressive Kounde to the Premier League at the end of the season.
Now, According to reports by Tutto Mercato Web, the Blues are coming “with strength to try to close the operation”. The reports suggest that The Blues have reportedly got director Marina Granovskaia leading the attempt, and are ready to offer an initial payment of £46million plus £4m in bonuses and Tutto Mercato Web claims the agreement between the clubs “seems close”, and the defender could indeed leave Sevilla to join the Blues this summer.
Do you think the signing of Kounde would be a great addition to the Blues team or another transfer failure by Thomas Tuchel?
