The major clubs that want to sign Aurelien Tchouameni and Jules Kounde
Aurelien Tchouameni and Jules Kounde are desperately wanted at Chelsea especially Kounde because the Premier League club is most likely to lose two of their center backs, Antonio Rudiger and Christensen to Real Madrid and FC Barcelona respectively.
Reports claimed that Sevilla is likely to let him go if Chelsea could cough out £59 million for his services. The 23-year-old French center-back is willing to join Chelsea which means that once the ongoing takeover of the club by the Todd Boehly-led consortium is done, the Frenchman could be announced as Chelsea’s new player.
As for Aurelien Tchouameni, his move from Monaco to Chelsea is said to be shaky because Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain are also competing for his signature. But reports claimed that Tchouameni is most likely to join Real Madrid over other suitors this summer.
