Sevilla defender Jules Kounde is edging towards a transfer to Chelsea.

The latest on a long transfer battle for the Sevilla defender is that Jules Kounde has been left out of Sevilla’s pre-season training camp in Portugal as Chelsea continue talks to sign the defender.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano had claimed: “Official. Jules Koundé has been left out of Sevilla’s squad for upcoming pre-season friendly in Portugal, as negotiations are still ongoing.

“It was already decided internally, as Sevilla are in talks to sell Koundé this week.”

After having an initial bid rejected, Chelsea is believed to have tabled a bid of £55m for the 23-year-old, and it’s expected that this would work to sign the France international.

Explaining why Chelsea need to make more signings, Tuchel recently said: “We need a couple more to improve the squad.

“We finished third last season – there was a gap. If you want to keep your position you need to improve. You can never stand still. Other teams will overtake you. We’ve lost players.

“This is common sense. It’s the dream of every manager to find players from your own league who can adapt so easily. Raheem knows the habits of English clubs and has English team-mates here.

“Kalidou (Koulibaly) knows Mendy from the national team and Jorginho was a big help from Napoli to make the process of integration faster. They are huge players for us. We need to speed things up.”
