Spurs join Manchester United in race to sign Kounde

Sun 11 July 2021 | 11:50

The Sevilla defender has been heavily linked with a move away from the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in recent weeks.

Following his impressive performances for

Sevilla

last season,

Jules Kounde

has attracted interest from top European clubs. The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to Manchester United for several months, but now other suitors have emerged for the center-back.

According to

Sport

,

Tottenham

are considering a summer move for the French defender. The club’s new manager Nuno Espirito Santo is keen to bolster Spurs’ backline ahead of the next season and sees Kounde as a suitable addition to his squad. Earlier this week,

The Sun

reported that

Chelsea

are also interested in a summer move for the Sevilla star.

Sevilla are hoping to ignite a bidding war between the three English giants for the transfer. Kounde is expected to be available for a fee of around £69m, but that might push Tottenham toward a move for cheaper options in the market. Real Madrid defender

Raphael Varane

and Villarreal’s

Pau Torres

have been on Manchester United’s wish-list for a long time, but they might be pursued by Tottenham, who are eager to increase their activity in the transfer market through their new sporting director Fabio Paratici.
