A bid of €60m from Chelsea would fall within the price Sevilla are looking for to sell Jules Koundé this summer.

That’s according to Diario de Sevilla, who report that the Spanish side still need a ‘considerable injection of money’ to get their own plans underway this summer.

Koundé has been named as one of Chelsea’s top priorities in this window, with them needing to replace both Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger in the heart of their defence.

The Frenchman is a favourite of the Blues, who tried to sign him last summer but could not reach an agreement with Sevilla.

Times have now changed, and the Spanish side are willing to do a deal, with director of football Monchi planning a complete overhaul of the squad.

They’ve already sold Diego Carlos to Aston Villa, and several reports have made it clear Koundé is likely to follow him through the exit door once Chelsea’s new owners have finalised their transfer plans.

Over in Spain, Diario say everything that has been reported would fit into what Sevilla want.

The €60m figure quoted would ‘fall within the pretensions’ of the club as they need a ‘considerable injection of money’ to balance the books.

Any suggestion that Chelsea intend to close the deal before the end of June would also be ‘very convenient’ for Sevilla as they’re planning for the first time to return in early July.

They are ‘receptive’ to any offer that might arrive, having promised Koundé to be so when they continually rejected Chelsea’s advances last summer.

They’re simply now waiting for the Blues to make their move, at which point a deal should be wrapped up relatively quickly.
