Chelsea remain interested in signing Jules Kounde from Sevilla despite spending £97.5million on the transfer of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.
However, a move for Kounde is reportedly dependent on whether the Blues can offload Kurt Zouma for £25million.
According to reports, Premier League side West Ham are interested in signing the France international and have been in talks over a deal in recent weeks but face one big problem in their pursuit of Zouma.
Zouma is reportedly demanding wages of over £100,000-a-week to leave Chelsea for West Ham this summer and that could scupper the deal with West Ham operating on a limited budget.
Meanwhile, former Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf doesn’t think Chelsea need to sign Kounde when the Blues already have Trevoh Chalobah.
