Transfer News: Chelsea Suffers a Transfer Setback as their Top Target undergo Surgical Intervention

Chelsea have been eyeing Sevilla defender Jules Kounde for a long time as a defensive reinforcement. The Blues were on the verge of signing him last summer, but Sevilla raised the asking price at the last minute, scuppering the deal.

Chelsea's interest in him has not waned, and they are confident of signing him this summer. However, Sevilla are not in a rush to sell him because they cannot afford to lose such a valuable player for a throwaway price. The Blues are keeping a close eye on him, and a deal appears to be in the works, but the Frenchman's surgical intervention could cause a delay.

Despite having a pre-existing injury, Kounde started in their 1-0 loss to Croatia, and it was confirmed after the game that the Frenchman would undergo surgery to fix his pelvic injury.

Chelsea will be hoping that the surgical intervention does not jeopardize their contract with the French star. He is expected to be fit in a matter of weeks, allowing him to complete his move to Chelsea and be ready to start the 2022/23 season.
