Jules Koundé has been in great form the last couple of years in Sevilla. The 23-year-old Frenchman has been very consistent with Sevilla playing a total of 95 games out of 114 for La Liga.
With Marcos Alonso set to leave Chelsea sometime in the near future, Thomas Tuchel is starting to look for a replacement. Koundé still has two years left on his contract with Sevilla. As reported from multiple sources, Sevilla is looking to sell Koundé for €65 million.
Tuchel is highly interested in the defender and with Marcos Alonso set to leave, it makes the possibility of this transfer happening more likely.
Koundé started in his first-team debut for Bordeaux in the 2–1 Coupe de France away loss to US Granville in the round of 64 on 7 January 2018, playing the full 90 minutes of normal time and the full 30 minutes of extra time. He started in his Ligue 1 debut for Bordeaux in a 1–0 away win over Troyes on 13 January 2018. On 10 February 2018, Koundé scored the opening goal of a 3–2 Ligue 1 home win over Amiens; it was his first career Ligue 1 goal and his first competitive goal for Bordeaux’s first team.
On 3 July 2019, he signed for Spanish club Sevilla FC. The transfer fee paid to Bordeaux was reported as €25 million.
