New Chelsea owners sent message about possible £54M arrival


Steve McManaman believes Chelsea target Jules Kounde might not be at the “top level” just yet, amid reports that the new owners will make a move for the Frenchman.

Before all the news broke which stopped Chelsea from doing any business, there were many reports in the media that the club had opened up talks with Sevilla about a possible transfer deal for Kounde

Kounde is a young defender that has been making all the right noises in the game over the past few seasons, and there has been much speculation that all the biggest clubs will make a move when the transfer window officially opens up.

Chelsea may not be able to sign players just yet, but that has not stopped the speculation about the new owners and who we will try and sign in the transfer window, and Kounde is a man that is once again on the lips of many at the club

However, amid all the speculation, McManaman believes Kounde might not be at the “top level” just yet, speaking to, McManaman said: “Koundé is a French international and he’s young. He will attract attention. The way defenders in Spain play always means they do.

“But even though he’s only 23 years old, he has been around and has been highly thought of for the past couple of years.

“However, nobody’s plumped for him yet, and there’s a reason. It’s either because he’s too expensive or he’s just not top level yet.

“I still think he has to improve if he’s going to be in the top echelons of the Premier League, where you will find the very best teams.”
