Spanish club Sevilla have confirmed they are willing to sell French defender, Jules Koundé – provided that they receive the right price for the 23-year old.
Chelsea were heavily linked with Koundé in the summer, but the deal eventually foundered on the valuation of the player, with Sevilla unwilling to compromise on their £68 million price tag.
They remain interested in signing him, with uncertainty about the futures of a number of central defenders at the club, but face competition from Manchester United now, who have their own issues at the back to fix.
Koundé, despite wanting to move to the Premier League, has remained in Spain for this season and has made 13 appearances for the La Liga side in all competitions so far this campaign.
He has also become a regular in the French national side after making his debut in June in a friendly against Wales, and has now six senior caps for his country.
