Sevilla, director of football Monchi, has confirmed they received an offer from Chelsea for Jules Koundé last week but have not heard from them since.

Koundé has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge for several weeks, but as yet, the Blues have not matched the Spanish side’s demands.

The possibility of a deadline day move remains on the table, with it felt Chelsea could up their bid and try to get a deal over the line in the final hours of the window.

Whether that happens remains to be seen, although they may want to move quickly as Real Madrid have now been linked with a late move as well.

Monchi has been holding a press conference today regarding the situation at the club and any impending business, and the subject of Koundé to Chelsea was raised.

He has confirmed an offer from the Champions League winners, but nothing that has matched what he and his club are looking for.

“There are possibilities that he could leave between now and 00.00, the same as his teammates have because of his clause,” Orgullo de Nervion report him saying.

“Yes, there has been interest from a club that the player liked, which was Chelsea.

“The first formal offer we received was on Wednesday, with an amount that dd not satisfy our requirements and conditional on Chelsea selling a player.

“We responded with a counter-offer that had an expiry date, which was Friday. Since Friday, until now, there has been no contact whatsoever with Chelsea.

“To the first offer for Koundé, we answered with an idea of our own. Everyone looks after their own interests, and the club has respected one hundred per cent when there has been interest from other teams, and the player didn’t think it was convenient.

“Koundé’s clause has never been 90 million euros, but 80 million euros.”
