Sevilla chief concedes Chelsea target Kounde ready to leave

Sevilla general director Jose Maria Cruz de Andres has confirmed Jules Kounde will leave this summer.

Chelsea are favourites to sign Kounde, with Barcelona also interested.

De Andres told Sport Witness: "Again, the player, I am sure, respects Sevilla FC. He is happy with us. In the case of Kounde, it is not a matter of money.

"It's a matter of him wanting to play in a more competitive team than Sevilla FC.

"I am sure he is a player that is attractive for teams like Chelsea, FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich and these types of teams.

"He wants to play in a more competitive team."
