CHELSEA targeting Sevilla's Kounde
Chelsea are thought to be pursuing a move for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde, according to the Italian reporter Fabrizio Romano. The Blues had been targeting Paris Saint-Germain's Marquinhos, but the Ligue 1 side are not open to selling the 27-year-old.
Kounde was also a January transfer target for Newcastle, but a move to Tyneside failed to materialise.
"Sevilla are already exploring the market in case Jules Koundé will leave the club in June - including some Serie A options. It’s not time for decisions yet, but Sevilla are on it. Chelsea will insist for Koundé - Marquinhos was #CFC dream but PSG won’t sell him".
