However the blues boss has been reported to be interested in as well bringing in former player at PSG, Kimpembe. But that is subject to more analysis after the transfer for Kounde is done.

Meanwhile Kounde has some negatives as has published. Sid Lowe, "I think Kounde is a wonderful footballer. I don't think he's a modern center-back, certainly from a spanish point of view.

I suppose the only concern for him might be, as center-backs go certainly in the Premier League, he's not very big. It will be interesting to see him in a much more frontal game. When the ball is in the air more, it's much more into the box.

It's not so much about sweeping things up, tidying, as being confronted by the ball coming to you. "Concluded the Spanish football expert. Meanwhile Tuchel has to sort out Lukaku future after reports that he wants to exit the club this summer.

Inter Milan have been linked with the player on-loan transfer in a move which may have to be too difficult for the Italians. This is due to Lukaku's £325k weekly salary as per Sunsport report in which he may be forced to accept a pay cut to make an exit.
