Chelsea are keen on signing Sevilla defender Jules Kounde and have offered Kurt Zouma plus cash for the France international.
However, Chelsea’s opening bid was rebuffed by Sevilla, who would prefer a straight cash offer and value their 22-year-old defender much closer to his £68m release clause.
According to The Athletic, Sevilla are interested in Zouma and would prefer another Chelsea player to be added to the deal for Kounde.
The report claims Sevilla are big admirers of Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen and could be tempted into entertaining a player-plus-cash swap deal if the Danish centre-back is included.
Will the Blues be interested in losing Christensen to sign Kounde?
