, has attracted so much interest with his performance, and the club has confirmed that they have rejected an offer for the defender, who has been a target for theBlues
in the transfer market.
The club has claimed that they don’t have to sell any players right now, but they also confirm that they would look at any offer that they receive for any player, and this could mean that the Champions League’s reigning champions may still have a chance to sign the young defender.
"It is true that there was an offer for Kounde that we turned down,"
club president Jose Castro explained to reporters on Wednesday
"Right now there is no concrete offer for the player. If it comes, we will look at it as we always have done. If we have to [sell], we will do, as long as those resources can be re-invested in the club to keep improving and expand our trophy cabinet.
"While the market is open, anything can happen. We have players who could leave. Anything can happen this time of year until the 31st. It is a window where there have been few moves in most clubs, but not in ours."
The La Liga side has increased Kounde’s release clause from €80 to €90 million, but Chelsea is still hopeful to be able to sign the defender with a lower price; however, the club’s president insists that they will only consider offers that will allow them to reinvest on their squad.
"Sevilla do not need to sell any player. We will sell if it suits us with an above-market bid which allows us to keep strengthening the team and achieving big things on the sporting side,"
. "That is what we have always done, we have not changed there."
