Kurt Zouma and Jules Kounde swap deal between Chelsea and Sevilla is the latest headlines making websites and newspapers, according to MySportPlug.
The Blues are currently pushing very hard for the deal to happen this summer as they are ready to make an inclusion of a very important player in the team who is also as young as their target.
Chelsea will include Kurt Zouma to the deal that could see them land Manchester United and Tottenham target Jules Kounde as they are currently pushing to make sure they come to an agreement in the coming days.
It was earlier reported that an agreement for personal terms have already been agreed between the player and Chelsea yesterday when the news came out that advance talks is already going on about a fee.
The person terms is a five years contract until 2026 and now the only thing left is Sevilla agreeing transfer fee which could see the player making that switch to England as he is eager to play for the Champions of Europe in the new season.
Jules Kounde have a release clause of €80 million and Chelsea won’t be looking to spend that much on him as they are exploring other ways which could see them spend less as they are known for getting a deal done by Marina.
Kurt Zouma will be included in the deal which could see little cash being paid or probably nothing at all as the Frenchman is also young and good, during Frank Lampard era he started every game and scored vital goals for Chelsea.
“Chelsea are pushing for Kounde. Kurt Zouma could be included in the negotiations as Sevilla appreciates him.
Talks ongoing – Emerson Palmieri is not even an option as of now.
Kounde is the main target now for Chelsea, as revealed yesterday. Work in progress – Today too. ”
Tottenham had almost finalize a deal for Kounde, but the player wanted Champions League football so he had to decline the move which have now seen another London side negotiating for a transfer fee which could be agreed and completed soon.
Manchester United were also nearing a move which saw them cool down on it after completing the signing of Raphael Varane from Real Madrid who is now set to undergo his medical and join the rest of the team ahead of the new season coming up.
So right now is just Chelsea who are pushing to reach an agreement which will see Kurt Zouma moving to Spain as Emerson isn’t the one Sevilla want despite earlier reports suggesting the Italian will be the one moving the opposite way.
Jules Kounde is now the main target after the Erling Haaland deal that now looks very impossible to happen as they will hope next summer they can sign him which will see them spend half of the current money they are trying to spend on him right now.
