Chelsea’s move for Jules Kounde might be heading sideways with the latest update coming from talks, MySportDab reports.
Jules Kounde is expected to join Chelsea this summer window as reports have claimed earlier with them already reaching an agreement for personal terms.
Everything seems to be slowing down for now with the new owner on board making sure they are setting things together behind the scene before deciding on what to do in the market.
This has affected a lot of movement which was planned to happen for the Blues in the summer window with Jules Kounde being one of those players who is expected to make a move.
Everything concerning signing players has been tabled aside leading to so many uncertainties facing the future of the club and who will be replacing the space left by Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.
With preseason also fast approaching, Thomas Tuchel is hoping everything can be resolved on time to ensure something happens concerning the movement of new players to the team.
Although things might start moving in the coming days of this week with club chairman Bruce Buck stepping down from his position which is expected to be taken over by Todd Boehly for the main time.
According to reports reaching us from 90 Mins, they confirmed Jules Kounde and his representatives are growing tired of Chelsea not making anything known to them.
Here Is What Was Said:
“Jules Kounde’s camp is growing frustrated with Chelsea’s lack of movement in negotiations for the French defender.
This might spell bad news for them as other suitors will be looking to hijack the deal from them which is expected to cost them about €80 million.
Chelsea is holding back from making such a move with a fee that could be used on getting an attacker with Romelu Lukaku set to join Inter Milan this summer.
