Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel will be short of options in th backline and therefore keen to strengthen his entire squad in summer transfer window following Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen's exits to La Liga.
The Germany tactician is claimed to have met Chelsea new owner Boehly yesterday but didn't talk about clubs transfers with reports now revealing that a club wants to sell target to Chelsea and it's only yawning for a quick deal.
According to Express Sport, Sevilla is allegedly keen on selling French defender Jules Kounde to Chelsea with verbal agreement already in place.
Kounde, 23 is a long term target for Stamford Bridge heavyweights literally after failing to score a move one year ago due to fees disagreement.
Tuchel is a huge admirer of Kounde and viewing him as a perfect target to command his backline in absence of departing Rudiger who's set to join Real Madrid as a free agent.
Meanwhile, Aurelien Tchouameni is still on Tuchel's transfer wishlist as a potential successor of Ngolo Kante.
Lastly in your opinion, Do you think Kounde should be signed?
