Chelsea have been linked with defender Jules Kounde throughout the past six months and the blues are getting increasingly closer to a deal.

There are reports that a financial agreement is already in place with the France International according to Goal's Chelsea Correspondent, Nizaar Kinsella, on his podcast.

However, this would cover Kounde's personal contracts but conversations so far with the centre back's current club Sevilla, have yet to bring about a final signing fee.  

A good sign for supporters of the London club though, is that the Frenchman is 'really up for joining Chelsea' which comes off the back of a suspected Barcelona offer of €60 million plus a player to their fellow Spanish rivals.
