According to Spanish media outlet El Gol Digital, Sevilla are willing to consider selling Jules Kounde to Chelsea FC this summer if Hakim Ziyech is included as part of the deal.

Sevilla want £52million for the 22 year old Kounde but are reportedly willing to reduce their asking price to £26m if Ziyech is included in the deal.

The report also claims Ziyech has been a long-term target for Sevilla since he helped Ajax reach the Champions League semi-finals in 2019.

Ziyech has been in and out of the Chelsea starting XI since joining from Ajax last summer.

Meanwhile, former Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf has urged Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel to play Ziyech in his correct position.

“I’m more concerned about Hakim Ziyech,” Leboeuf told ESPN FC. “If he plays, why doesn’t he [Tuchel] put him on the right?

“I saw him today very frustrated when he came off after playing like a number ten. I don’t think that’s his real position.

“Tuchel really has to think that Ziyech has to play on the right side. It’s like [Riyad] Mahrez, he’s a copy-cat of Mahrez.

“I don’t see [Pep] Guardiola putting Mahrez in another position than on the right side.”
