Chelsea making first offer for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde

Chelsea are making an offer for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde.

Marca says Chelsea are now favourites to sign Kounde, despite rival interest from Barcelona.

The London club is ready to pay €50m for the 23-year-old Frenchman.

Kounde has a contract with Sevilla to 2024 and club officials stated last week an expectation he would leave this summer.

Chelsea hope to wrap up a deal quickly for the Frenchman after losing defensive pair Toni Rudiger and Andreas Rudiger.
