Player pulls out of squad as he seeks to secure transfer to Chelsea

According to reports in Spain, Chelsea transfer target Jules Kounde has pulled out of Sevilla’s squad and elected not to travel for Saturday’s clash against Elche as he looks to secure a transfer to Chelsea.

Sevilla are reportedly demanding around £60million for Kounde but the Blues are offering just above £42million for the 22 year old France international.

With the Blues reportedly reluctant to match Sevilla’s asking price, the La Liga side are continuing to reject Chelsea’s proposal which has forced Kounde to take matters into his own hands, according to Spanish media outlet Marca.

The 22-year-old is desperate to move to Stamford Bridge and has not travelled with the rest of the squad to fly to Elche for Saturday’s La Liga game.

Would the Blues reach an agreement with Sevilla for the transfer of Kounde this weekend?
