The Blues have opened talks with Spanish side Sevilla over the transfer of France international Jules Kounde.
Chelsea are reportedly offering defender Kurt Zouma in the deal for Kounde.
According to Goal, Sevilla are only willing to accept Chelsea’s offer of Zouma for Kounde if the Blues include a fee of around €45m (£38m/$53m).
Sevilla reportedly want any deal for Kounde to be closer to his release clause of €80 million (£68m/$95m). Sevilla value Zouma at around €35million.
It’s yet to be seen if Chelsea will be willing to offer Zouma plus €45million for Kounde.
