Chelsea given new Koundé hope

Chelsea may have until the summer to sign Jules Koundé from Sevilla.

But the wait could be worth it, as they may be able to sign the French international for a relatively low price.

At the start of the season, Seville rejected Chelsea’s offer for the player because it did not match their £68 million valuation of him.

That decision was not well received by Koundé, who has openly stated his wish to play in the Premier League, and felt the la Liga side were denying him the opportunity.

The Spanish club, who are in contention for  Champion League place, do not want to sell him in the middle of the season.

However, there is a growing acceptance that they cannot hold on to his beyond the current campaign, and their financial situation also means they will accept a lower price for him now because they need to balance the books.
