Barcelona are interested in signing Jules Kounde from La Liga rivals Sevilla in the summer transfer window, according to Fichajes. The report has claimed that Barcelona head coach Xavi personally wants to bring the 23-year-old France international central defender to Camp Nou this summer.
The former La Liga and UEFA Champions League winners have made an offer of €55 million plus €10 million in add-ons to Sevilla for Kounde. Barcelona are also willing to offer the former Bordeaux defender €7 million per season as salary to convince him to move to Camp Nou.
However, the problem for Barcelona is that Chelsea’s offer for Kounde is superior. The Premier League giants have offered Sevilla €65 million with variables and are ready to pay the youngster €12 million in salary per season. Sevilla are likely to sell the defender to the highest bidder, but Kounde will have the final say in where he goes.
