Chelsea calm over op claims for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde

Chelsea are unconcerned over plans for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde to undergo surgery.

France boss Didier Deschamps spoke of the imminent operation after Les Bleus lost to Croatia on Monday night, sparking fears his Stamford Bridge switch will be called off.

A £55m deal is set to be completed early next month.
