SEVILLA defender Jules Kounde has reportedly agreed a five-year deal with Premier League side Chelsea. The Blues were heavily linked with the Frenchman last summer but their bid failed to force Sevilla's hand into selling.

Kounde was said to be left fuming with his club for denying him a move to the then European champions. The 23-year-old may finally get his move away fro Sevilla this summer, with a number of top clubs eyeing a move.

According to Sport , Kounde has agreed a five-year deal with Chelsea but a fee with Sevilla is yet to be struck. Barcelona are also believed to be in the hunt for th defender.

Xavi and Co believe a fee of £51.6million is feasible, but Sevilla are hoping to collect closer to £56m.

In order to beat Chelsea to Kounde's signature, Barca would have to convince the player to accept half of what Thomas Tuchel's side are offering.

Barca can't offer the same wage as the Prem side who are reportedly ready to make him one of the highest paid players at Stamford Bridge - a risky move that could lead to possible unrest within the squad.

Kounde caused concern during the international break after an old pelvic problem flared up.
