Chelsea fans have been told that a deal for Jules Kounde will happen this transfer window.
It is no secret that Thomas Tuchel wants to add another defender to the squad over the course of this transfer window and has been linked with a number of top players.
However, it seems that they have settled on trying to secure a transfer deal for the very impressive Kounde, who is easily regarded as one of the finest young defenders in world football right now
The club were unwilling to meet the £68million asking price for the 23-year-old, so decided on a player-swap deal plus cash to facilitate the move, and it seemed that the £68 million defender was all set for a move to the Bridge, especially after reports claimed that he had already agreed personal terms
However, Due to the setbacks in the deal, Kounde is reportedly ‘feeling uneasy’ making a move to the Bridge, despite having agreed a four-year deal with the club.
But dont fret fans, as talkSPORT’s transfer correspondent Alex Crook has the latest information on the situation and remains confident a deal will be achieved.
Crook said: “I think Kounde will happen. I think at the moment they are haggling over whether Kurt Zouma will be part of that deal.
“I think Zouma wants to stay in the Premier League. I know West Ham would be keen to sign him, but maybe not for the price Chelsea are looking for.
“With Tammy Abraham, I think they are going to have to lower that £40million price or he will be price out of a move.”
He will be a very good signing for the club should we get to wrap up a deal
