According to reports from Spain, Chelsea have an advantage over Premier League rivals Manchester United in the race for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde.

This is because Sevilla have an interest in signing Chelsea midfielder Hakim Ziyech.

According to Spanish media outlet El Gol Digital, Sevilla are prepared to reduce Kounde’s asking price by 50 per cent if the Blues are willing to include the Morocco international as part of the deal.

Sevilla are looking for a £52m transfer fee for Kounde but would be happy to let the 22 year old defender join Chelsea for just £26million if Ziyech is included in the deal.

Should Chelsea include Ziyech in a swap deal for Sevilla’s Kounde?
