Fans told Chelsea board have made brilliant defender Kounde number one target
Chelsea’s reported number one summer transfer target has been revealed by journalist Fabrizio Romano.
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.
But according to respected Journalist Romano, we have made the impressive Kounde the number one transfer target, even though he could cost some serious money: ‘Chelsea have Jules Kounde as top target in their summer list, as reported days ago,’ Romano tweeted. ‘Not the only candidate – but still appreciated after deal collapsed with Sevilla last August.
‘Sevilla wanted €65/70m last summer.’
We are massive fans of Kounde and firmly believe that he will be one of the very best defenders on the planet in the coming seasons. So if Romano is correct and the Blues have made him their number one target, he would be an ideal signing for the club
We will not worry about the money side of things, but they will not want to pay too much money for a player that still has alot to prove at the top level
But as we said, we are massive fans of Kounde and believe that he would have a real impact at the club
