Chelsea transfer news: Jules Kounde deal off


Chelsea’s approach for Sevilla and France centre-back Jules Kounde has collapsed after the clubs failed to reach an agreement over the transfer fee.

Chelsea have had their eye on Kounde for some time, although Sevilla have stood firm over their valuation of the 22-year-old – who was also of interest to Manchester United prior to them landing Raphael Varane. He also rebuffed Tottenham over a lack of Champions League football.

A deal between the Blues and Sevilla for Kounde had looked possible. However, only a few hours before the transfer deadline, Fabrizio Romano reported that talks had ended.

With no agreement made, the journalist explained there was ‘no intention’ to keep trying to negotiate, with Chelsea failing to meet Kounde’s release clause of €80m.

Sevilla will be boosted by Kounde staying as it means he can play for them in the Champions League. But for Chelsea the lack of a deal is a blow to their plans of adding depth to their squad.
