🇫🇷 Chelsea begin official talks for Jules Kounde

European champions Chelsea have set sights on Manchester United's reported target Jules Kounde.

The highly-rated Frenchman impressed at Sevilla last season in 49 appearances that included four goals and one assist from central defence and aged 22.

Following United, Tottenham Hotspurs and Real Madrid's reported interest, Chelsea is believed to become the first club to start formal talks with Sevilla.

"EXCL. Chelsea have opened official talks with Sevilla for Jules Koundé. He’s the main target as centre back, negotiations ongoing to reach an agreement," Fabrizio Romano reported.

"Koundé is open to accept Chelsea as next clubs as he wants Champions League football. Now it’s up to the two clubs," the reporter concluded.

Meanwhile, the Blues take on Bournemouth in a preseason friendly on Tuesday.
