Chelsea will have to increase their bid from €55 million if they will be able to sign Jules Kounde from Sevilla, MySportDab reports.
The Blues bid of €55 million has been turned down by Sevilla who are now demanding for €70M or no deal will happen this summer.
It is another issue for Chelsea who are now in serious problems after they recently confirm the sale of Kourt Zouma to West Ham.
The transfer window will shutdown in the next few hours as clubs are already finalizing all late moves which needed to be done before it closes.
The Blues will have to increase their offer if they want to land the defender who has already agreed on personal terms with them.
Sevilla have turned down a bid worth €55 million from Chelsea for Jules Kounde, according to reports coming from L’Equipe reporter, Nabil Djellit.
The Blues are keen to sign the 22-year-old France defender before the deadline after making room in the squad by selling Kurt Zouma to West Ham who already left for his new team.
However, Sevilla are now demanding Jules Kounde will not be sold for anything less than their €70 million (£60m/$82m) valuation.
This is now a big problem as it is currently above what Chelsea are willing to pay for the defender who was almost on his way to Tottenham before turning down the deal.
Jules Kounde to Chelsea now looks unlikely to happen this summer transfer window as both sides are still yet to come to an agreement.
