Florian Plettenberg has claimed that Chelsea are still in talks to sign Sevilla defender Joules Kounde.

Sevilla defender Jules Kounde is apparently top of the club’s wish list according to the journalist, after a move was said to be close last summer.

The French international has featured in 19 La Liga matches so far this season and is contracted at the club until June 2024, but he is heavily tipped to leave the Spanish side in the summer

It is no secret that Thomas Tuchel will need to add a few more defenders to the squad on the coming window as a number of stars could actually be leaving on a free, and there has been some big names linked with the club.

Kounde is playing the ‘last leg of his career at Sevilla’ and will leave them as their record sale in the summer, with both Chelsea and Barcelona battling it out for his services.

However, despite the fact it would be alot easier to stay in La Liga, IcChelseanews has learned the Sevilla star has decided a switch to the Premier League suits him better than Camp Nou.

Now, amid the speculation, Florian Plettenberg has Tweeted: ‘Update Jules #Koundé: His management ist still in talks with #CFC. But with Real Madrid and #Barcelona as well! It is said that all teams have chances to get him in summer. #FCBayern was no hot topic so far.’

We have always said that we are massive fans of Kounde and believe he is well suited to the Premier League, so if the reports are actually true and he has decided to make the move to Stamford Bridge

He will be a very good signing for the club
