Report: Chelsea could offer Ziyech and several other players in deal for £69m-rated defender


According to Spanish outlet AS, Chelsea is willing to place some of their players on the table in potential talks to sign Sevilla center-back Jules Kounde.



With 33 appearances in all competitions already this season, the 22-year-old has been an effective player for Sevilla, who look to be on track for a top-four finish in La Liga.


Chelsea, who is looking to sign a center-back this summer, is one of the clubs with the most interest in the Frenchman, according to AS.

However, the Blues aren't the only ones interested in him; Manchester United and Real Madrid are both rumored to be interested.

The fact that Kounde has an €80 million (£69.3 million) release clause that Sevilla is "clinging to" may be a problem for these clubs, according to the article.

Chelsea will include one of their players, as well as cash, in their first offer, according to AS.



Hakim Ziyech, Tammy Abraham, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Michy Batshuayi, and even Kepa Arrizabalaga are among the players who could be included in the contract, according to the article.


Observation of the Chronicle


Given that he has only been at the club since last summer, Ziyech's inclusion in the list is perhaps the most shocking.

The 28-year-old has shown flashes of brilliance but has yet to establish himself as a regular under Thomas Tuchel.

But, according to the article, if Chelsea is serious about taking Kounde to Stamford Bridge, Ziyech and Abraham will be the two players who could persuade Sevilla to join a possible swap deal.
