According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Sevilla defender Jules Kounde is close to completing a €50million move to Chelsea.
Sevilla had previously insisted Chelsea pay Kounde’s €80 release clause but the Blues have successfully negotiated Sevilla’s asking price for the defender.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano have also confirmed Chelsea have made a breakthrough in negotiations to sign Sevilla defender Jules Kounde.
With the Blues reaching an agreement with Sevilla for Kounde, Chelsea would be hoping Kurt Zouma reaches an agreement with West Ham over a transfer.
The Blues are reportedly looking to offload Zouma before signing Kounde.
