Chelsea might not be sealing Jules Kounde move this summer as they have been hit with another blow after Kurt Zouma exit, MySportDab reports.
The Blues were supposed to have finalized an agreement after opening serious talks with Sevilla for the defender.
It looks like a deal that might not be happening as Sevilla won’t be looking to listen to anything less than what they asked for.
Chelsea were told they could only sign Jules Kounde for €80 million and not less could see them agreeing on a move with his club.
A report of a €50 million bid was made but it was rejected in a late twist which the club are now demanding something more.
Blues given ultimatum over defender transfer to England as transfer window closes in few hours.
Chelsea have been told they may have to meet Jules Kounde’s €80 million (£68/$94m) release clause if they fail to submit a suitable offer for the France defender on Monday, according to AS reports reaching us.
Sevilla wants around €60-70m for the player, but if such a bid does not arrive in time, the Blues will be forced to pay full price.
This will now put the whole deal in jeopardy with few hours left for all transfers to be completed before shut down of business for all European clubs.
