The Blues are exploring options, according to Fabrizio Romano who confirmed latest update concerning the move.
Here Is What He Said;
“Chelsea are working to find a solution with Sevilla as soon as possible to sign Jules Kounde.
“He’s the priority after personal terms agreed, and Chelsea want him to join.
“Kurt Zouma still discussed in the deal, but Chelsea want to go through also if Zouma won’t be included”.
Chelsea only signing this summer window is a goalkeeper who joins after his contract with Fulham expired.
