After losing two experienced defenders in the ongoing transfer window, Chelsea FC is now working hard to replace the gap left by Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen by linking up with a number of world-class center-backs.
However, Thomas Tuchel is solely focusing on signing a French defender from Sevilla as the news of Jules Kounde Transfer is catching the media’s attention again because of the potential threat from FC Barcelona.
How is the Chelsea manager dealing with Jules Kounde Transfer?
Kalidou Koulibaly is one of the high-profile signings Thomas Tuchel made in this transfer window alongside Raheem Sterling, but he still needs at least two more full-backs to make the squad look balanced.
As of today, Spanish club Sevilla are continuing serious negotiations with Chelsea for Jules Kounde’s transfer, but the negotiations are being hindered by lucrative offers from giant FC Barcelona in recent times, who are also hopeful of landing the French defender in the Catalan Capital in the coming days.
According to famous soccer correspondent Fabrizio Romano, the transfer saga of Jules Kounde is going into a new phase as he mentioned the Blues manager who said, “Koundé deal? I’ve no update”.

"We had an urgent appeal for quality players and a huge amount of quality players. We got two quality players no doubt but we’re not competitive like this and you could see that today", added. @AdamNewson pic.twitter.com/grCItJ6u8X

Apart from commenting on Jules Kounde, Tuchel also indicated that his side is lacking the required skills and experience in the defense department, which he emphasized by saying, “We had an urgent appeal for quality players and a huge number of quality players.” We’ve got two quality players, no doubt, but we’re not competitive like this and you could see that today. ”
The Chelsea manager made the above comment with a view to strengthening his new squad in a very short time and he also gave his club authorities a clear message that without signing new defenders, the team would perform horribly in the Premier League and UCL next season.
