🇫🇷 Chelsea enter final process to sign Jules Kounde

European champions Chelsea  are reportedly a few final details away from signing the highly-rated French defender Jules Kounde.

The 22-year-old has been in the thick of this season's transfer rumours from day one, where he was first linked with Manchester United.

Chelsea have since entered and dominated the race after Thomas Tuchel seemingly had a look at all his central defensive options during the preseason.

With the likes of César Azpilicueta and Thiago Silva on the other side of 30, the Blues only have Antonio Rugider, Andreas Christensen and Trevoh Chalobah, while Tuchel looks unconvinced by Kurt Zouma and Malang Sarr.

Enter Jules Kounde...?

"Chelsea are prepared to submit an official bid for Jules Koundé in the next hours. Chelsea will proceed once Zouma-West Ham deal will be completed [€30m fee, still final details to be sorted on personal terms]. Personal terms agreed since weeks between Koundé-Chelsea," Fabrizio Romano reported on Twitter.

Meanwhile, the West London giants preparing to visit Liverpool at Anfield this weekend.
