However, Arsenal’s target wanted to move to their rival club Chelsea. Though both the clubs developed themselves a lot in this English Premier League season but then also full-back desire to move at UEFA Champions League winners Chelsea.
As per the report from the Athletic, Seville fullback will move out in this season that too in one of the top English Premier League clubs. Both Chelsea and Arsenal are also looking to rebuild their defence lineup by recruiting new players.
It also looks like Chelsea will follow the last season’s criteria of transferring players i.e one in one out. The newly appointed manager of Stamford Bridge side Thomas Tuchel also needed some changes in the current squad.
According to some of the reports from the English news websites, Thomas Tuchel requested more than 10 players transfer this season. If Kounde desire to move to Chelsea then he might get a chance of playing for the Stamford Bridge side.
Besides this Arsenal also made small changes in the club’s strategies when requires at the time of game weeks. Hence, this helps them to reach the middle of the points table by improving the game in comparison to the previous English Premier League season.
Price evaluated by the Sevilla is very costly for Arsenal:
Despite this, La Liga club Sevilla estimated a large amount for a transfer fee of centre-back. Clubs willing to buy him expecting to get him below his price tag set by Seville. But the increase in demand made the La Liga side keep its value high and make a profit from it.
Sevilla looking forward to selling him at £47m which is too big for others but Chelsea doesn’t have any problem with money. On either side, if Arsenal wish to buy him then they need to set the bid more than Chelsea. Hence, it seems to be a bit difficult to North London side.
Therefore, they need to see another option for centre-back position rather than Jules Kounde. As it seems to be impossible to crack his deal in front of Chelsea’s interest in him. So in the end all depends on the club and the player’s decision while selecting the club to move on with.
Meanwhile, playing two seasons for the Spanish side he made lots of improvement in his performance. As he scored two goals as a defender in his total of 34 appearances for Seville in this football season. Such continuity during the entire season adds an advantage for players’ statistics.
In total, he played 49 matches for the Spanish side and netted four goals up to date. Therefore it clears how impactful and valuable a player he is in Sevilla’s squad. But the willingness to leave the club might bring some changes for the Spanish side in the next La Liga season.
