Latest: Chelsea ready to announce the signing of 23-year-old star player
Chelsea could add a great player to their team, according to rumours, as German tactician Thomas Tuchel wants to keep positioning the Blues for success.
Without a doubt, the Chelsea football club will stay confident of winning more trophies under Thomas Tuchel’s direction before the end of the 2021/2022 season.
The West London team has been in excellent form for the majority of the 2021/2022 season and has already qualified for the Carabao Cup final, where they will face Liverpool.
Chelsea is now in third place in the Premier League table after a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
Chelsea, on the other hand, are still looking to improve their defensive options and have been linked with a deal for promising Sevilla center defender Jules Kounde.
The 23-year-old France international, who joined Sevilla in 2019, has played a vital role in the first-team squad in recent seasons.
During the 2020/2021 season, the youthful centre-back was a key player for Sevilla, scoring four goals and providing one assist in 44 games across all competitions.
Jules Kounde has had a fantastic 2021/2022 season so far, scoring one goal and assisting on another in 25 appearances across all competitions.
Chelsea are interested in signing him, according to reports in The Sun. His impressive performances in the heart of defence have piqued Chelsea’s interest.
According to the rumours, Chelsea are keen to recruit Jules Kounde from Sevilla and are close to agreeing a cost ahead of the summer transfer window.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is said to be preparing for the departures of defenders Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, and he is interested in signing Jules Kounde.
If he is signed in the summer, Jules Kounde will join the Chelsea defense line alongside Trevoh Chalobah, Thiago Silva, and Malang Sarr.
