Chelsea linked with swoop to snap up La Liga talent Jules Kounde
The club is uncertain about the future of the talented French centre-half, who is one of manager Thomas Tuchel’s main targets in the transfer market this summer.
The Blues are even expected to launch a fresh move for Kounde once they finalise the acquisition of Romelu Lukaku. The Inter Milan star’s move to Stamford Bridge is now imminent, having reached a total agreement a few days ago.
The completion of the transfer should enable the west Londoners to set their sights on Jules, as they look to wrap up business before the start of the campaign.
