Sevilla’s technical director Monchi says the Spanish membership will promote Jules Kounde if an ‘vital’ bid is available in for the defender.
The 22-year-old has been linked with a change to Chelsea and Tottenham, however the Blues are reluctant to pay his £68million launch clause.
As a substitute, the Stamford Bridge hierarchy wish to embrace gamers within the deal to cut back Sevilla’s worth for the highly-rated Frenchman.
A bid of £30m and Kurt Zouma was rejected by the LaLiga membership final month however talks are ongoing between the 2 sides with optimism a deal will be accomplished.
Sevilla could effectively maintain out for the complete £68m charge with Monchi insisting he’ll solely be offered on the proper worth.
He stated: “Many golf equipment have requested for Koundé. After all there’s curiosity however no official bid on the desk. I don’t know what’s gonna occur… if an vital bid arrives, we’ll promote as that is our coverage to enhance the staff.”
Kounde joined Sevilla from Bordeaux in 2019 and helped them win the Europa League in his first marketing campaign.
He was a part of France’s Euro 2020 squad this summer time and has received two caps for his nation.

“He could be a superb match for anyone within the Premier League and it’s no shock that Chelsea try to get him,” Gibson informed talkSPORT.
“He’s a diminutive central defender, however he’s actually good within the air. He’s fast, good on the ball and might play centre-back and right-back as effectively.
“I believe he’s a superb participant however I’d be surpised if it occurs as a result of Sevilla, having offered Bryan Gil, the participant they needed to maintain is Jules Kounde.
“They’re hoping that the funds acquired from Gil would allow them to maintain him, but it surely seems maybe the participant believes it may be time to maneuver on to a membership which is difficult for the title.”
