The leaders of Sevilla FC are said to be ready to negotiate the departure of French central defender Jules Koundé to Chelsea.
Thomas Tuchel, the coach of the London team, has been active for several months to strengthen his defense. Having drawn up a short-list in this case, the German technician hopes to be able to record arrivals from the beginning of January. And one of his priorities is the recruitment of the French defender, Jules Koundé. After having come up against the intransigence of the Sevilla FC, the Blues should have an opening soon.
According to the information from ESPN, the Spanish leaders would be ready to revise down the asking price for the former central defender of the Girondins of Bordeaux. Having demanded 80 million euros to let Jules Koundé leave at first, the Sevillian side would now be ready to negotiate.
Failure to convince defenders at the end of the contract at the end of the season; Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta, Chelsea know perfectly well that reinforcements will have to be found as early as January so as not to end up with a diminished team next summer. Already interested in the profile of Jules Koundé when he was coach of Paris Saint-Germain, Thomas Tuchel would be pushing internally to advance the negotiations.
