Announcement soon: Blues target has ‘agreed five-year deal’ with Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea


There has been a lot of noise around the last few days regarding one Chelsea target in particular, writes the Chelsea News.

It has been pretty straight-forward with this one for quite some time, but as always is the case with many of these transfer deals, things change and other clubs come in and try to spoil the party.

It looks like that is what Barcelona have been trying to do with Chelsea’s pursuit of Jules Kounde, a player who they have been trying to sign for a year now but could not agree a fee last summer.

Lots of Catalan reports started claiming that Barcelona were advancing for Kounde in the last couple of days, but it appears that Chelsea are still on course to sign him.

A couple of UK media outlets have reported Chelsea are still confident today.

But perhaps one of the most interesting report from today was from local Sevilla media, ABC Sevilla, as cited by Sport Witness.

They claim that Jules Koundé has ‘already agreed’ a five-year deal with Chelsea, which includes a salary that would be two or three times more than what Barcelona can currently offer. Sevilla wait for Chelsea to match their €60-65m [£52m-£56m] valuation.
