Spurs and Arsenal could rival Chelsea for Koundé.

Jules Koundé spent much of the summer being linked with a move to Chelsea, but, in the end, no deal materialised.

His parent club Sevilla were unwilling to let him go unless his £68.5 million release clause was met, despite the financial challenges the La Liga side is facing in the wake of the Covid pandemic.

That was a price the West London club were unwilling to pay, and the player was annoyed by the Spanish club’s stance.

Chelsea have not given up hope of signing him again when the transfer window opens again, but they could face competition from familiar rivals. Both Spurs and Arsenal are also tracking the French international, who could yet realise his dream of moving to the Premier League this season.
