Chelsea are reportedly edging closer to finalizing deal for Beninese descendent, Jules Olivier Koundé
Koundé after turning down offer for Tottenham Hotspur is set to join Chelsea on a permanent deal which would see Kurt Zouma go the opposite way.
The deal will become Chelsea’s second deal of the summer after landing a third choice keeper.
Following recent reports, Chelsea will pay a sum believed to be around €35m in addition with Kurt Zouma in the swap deal.
The 22-year-old helped Sevilla qualify for the Champions League last season and was part of the French squad for the just concluded Euro2020.
