CHELSEA are in the battle to try and sign Barcelona’s star defender Jule Kounde in the summer, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Despite the fact that we have yet to officially confirmed Mauricio Pochettino will still be the boss for next season – that has not stopped the speculation that Ted Boehly is still eager to sign a few more players in the transfer window.

Kounde is a player that the club have been linked with ever since his days with Sevilla – but have never been able to convince the Frenchman that a move to the Premier League is one he needs to make.

However – Kounde’s future in Spain now looks uncertain as the Spaniards are going to sell a number of players in the coming transfer window in hope that they can freshen up the side after a disappointing campaign.

He has already attracted interest from several European giants including Paris Saint-Germain, Inter and Manchester United

We have just allowed Thiago Silva to leave the club and head back to Brazil – so they will need to sign a ready-made replacement for the world class act.

But Kounde is a man that they have wanted for some time and is a player that could be one of the best – he would be a brilliant signing.
