Why Chelsea need to close the Jules Kounde deal sooner rather than later

Why Chelsea need to close the Jules Kounde deal sooner rather than later

Chelsea chases Kounde

It was exactly three weeks ago that news of Chelsea chasing Sevilla center-back Jules Kounde broke into the mainstream media, with thoughts at the time that Kurt Zouma could take the opposite direction on one more cash play.

Transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano revealed that Kounde himself was open to the play and that the two clubs simply had to agree on a fee for the player. However, that has proven to be less straightforward than previously thought, with Chelsea attempting to negotiate a deal worth less than the release clause in the center-back’s contract, which is believed to be £ 68m.

Since then, the Blues turned their attention to the center forward, leading Romelu Lukaku back to the club as their new record signing.

Chelsea needs to spend money

Meanwhile, a deal for Kounde could become even more difficult for Thomas Tuchel’s side, with Diario AS [Via the Daily Mirror] informing that the release clause will increase before the end of the window.

While it currently stands at 68 million pounds, according to the report, by August 31 it will have reached 77 million pounds (90 million euros).
