Chelsea ‘confident’ in securing €50 million deal after 26-years old sale sale

Published

Chelsea are ‘confident’ in securing the signing of Sevilla defender Jules Kounde once the sale of Kurt Zouma to West Ham United is complete.

Kounde has been a target for the Blues all summer, with notorious transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano first breaking the story last month, and has been providing frequent updates on the saga.

Tottenham were also chasing the Frenchman but he was not interested in a move to north London due to their lack of Champions League football.

And his move to Stamford Bridge has been hinging on the future of Zouma as Chelsea have been keen on offloading the 26-year-old.

West Ham are close to signing the centre-back, but had previously been put off by the Blues’ asking price and players’ wage demands.

Hammers boss David Moyes confirmed the deal was imminent on Friday, saying: “We have had an offer accepted from Chelsea for Kurt but I could not tell you if the medical has been completed yet.”

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel also confirmed a deal was close.

He said: “There are negotiations between West Ham and Chelsea about Kurt. Kurt right now is not with us but not because of these negotiations.

“He’s had some personal and family issues and we allowed him to travel to France. There are negotiations but, to be very honest, I don’t know where that leads right now. Those things can happen at this stage.”

The Blues will make their final push for Kounde after this transfer is complete, and are ‘confident’ in finalising the move, according to Romano.

He claims Chelsea will submit a €50million official bid for the Sevilla man.

However, the Spanish club will want more to sell their star centre-back.

Talks are ongoing and the situation is ‘tense’ – with the player keen on a move to the English capital.

Sevilla’s club president Jose Castro said: “Kounde is our player, as of now. There’s nothing agreed or done at the moment. We always consider the offers. But the days are ending.”

They will stand firm in negotiations, ensuring Chelsea meet their requirements.

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.
