Chelsea: Tuchel found the solution to unlock Jules Koundé’s file
Jules Koundé’s move to Chelsea is becoming clearer but the Blues must first finalize Kurt Zouma’s move to West Ham.
Chelsea’s first summer signing made quite an impression this weekend. Scorer in the derby against Arsenal (2-0); Romelu Lukaku has already sent a message to the entire Premier League. But the Belgian certainly won’t be the only new face to the Blues this season. Thomas Tuchel has set his sights on Sevilla FC’s young defender Jules Koundé. Sparkling since his arrival in Andalusia; the former Girondins de Bordeaux nugget could land at Chelsea for an amount between 60 and 80 million euros.
A colossal sum especially since the European champion has already provided 115 million euros to ensure the services of Romelu Lukaku. But to finance the operation; Thomas Tuchel would have made the decision to sell to another Frenchman; Kurt Zouma. Banned by competition; the 26-year-old defender appears to be getting closer to West Ham. Based on information from The athleticThe Hammers coach; David Moyes; would have agreed to pay the 30 million euros demanded by the Blues. The only detail to be settled is still the player’s salary since Kurt Zouma asks for more than the 145;000 euros per week that he currently earns at Chelsea. It remains to be seen whether the former Stéphanois will find common ground with West Ham to allow the Blues to finalize the transfer of Jules Koundé in the process.
