Sevilla demand Chelsea go higher for Barcelona target Kounde

Sevilla are demanding Chelsea get serious about Jules Kounde.

Marca says Chelsea’s first offer for Jules Kounde – 50 million euros, plus five million euros in variables – was rejected by the Andalusian club’s directors, although it was only the first step in an operation that shouldn’t take long to be resolved.

At Nervion, they want it to be resolved as soon as possible in order to move on to the other deals that Monchi has put on hold.

Sevilla are putting a bit of pressure on Chelsea if they don’t want the bidding to go above what they want to pay.

It’s obvious that Sevilla want to get as much money as possible, although they don’t want to have an all-out bidding war that would prolong the sale of Kounde for several more weeks.

What they do hope for is some movement from Barcelona, a club that has closed every single transfer they have wanted in this window.
