Barcelona agree to sign Chelsea target Jules Kounde from Sevilla for £41.87m

FC Barcelona have rushed to a deal for Chelsea FC target Jules Kounde from Seville.

The 23-year-old France international is set to join the Spanish side for a reported €50m (£41.87m) provided he passes a medical and agrees to personal terms, which shouldn’t be a problem as he’s already for photos at Barca has posed clothes.

It’s a blow to Chelsea, who were hoping to bring the centre-backs to Stamford Bridge but are now having to look for alternative defensive options.

A statement from Barca read: “FC Barcelona and FC Sevilla have reached an agreement on the transfer of Jules Olivier Kounde and are waiting for the player to pass a medical and sign the contract.”

The deal continues Barca’s spending spree this summer after capturing Raphina from Leeds and Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski.

Kounde joined Sevilla from Bordeaux in 2019 and made 133 appearances for the Andalusian club.

Chelsea lost defenders Andreas Christensen – to Barcelona – and Antonio Rudiger on a free transfer this summer and despite signing Kalidou Koulibaly Thomas Tuchel is still looking for more signings.
