Chelsea seem to have reached an agreement to achieve one of their other summer goals.

After an agreement with West Ham to transfer Kurt Zouma,


is negotiating with Sevilla to attract Jules Kounde.

Reports indicate that progress in talks between the English and Spanish club has been observed and Sevilla has agreed with the amount of € 50 million for this transfer.

The blue people were planning to buy an attacker and a defender. They attracted Romelu Lukaku from Inter with 120 million euros. Now they are thinking of strengthening their defensive line and Jules Kounde is their first option on this path. After the imminent separation of Kurt Zouma to West Ham, Chelsea entered with negotiations with Sevilla and talks between them seemed well progress.

Kounde was in the radar of many clubs in summer transfers, but Sevilla did not respond to any offer. Chelsea hopes to finalize this transfer until the end of the summer transfers that will be on Tuesday next week.

The 22-year-old Kounde hopes to join the European champion, but Sevilla is going to receive majority of the transfer fee first. Negotiations seem to be about the payment structure and should see where it will eventually come.
