Chelsea among the three most attractive options for Jules Kounde transfer this summer

The European Championships start tomorrow night, and if you want the best possible build-up, you should check out The Athletic’s guide to the tournament.

It’s mainly concerned with the games themselves – as it should be, but there’s plenty on individual players at the tournament and where their future could be.

Among them is Jules Kounde, the impressive Sevilla and France defender.

It’s claimed in the transfer section of his profile that “Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea are the most attractive options” for the defender should he leave his current club this summer.

We’re not sure where exactly he would fit into this team at the moment, given the quality bursting from every position, but there’s no reason to think we wouldn’t be his preferred destination should we have a bid accepted.

Playing 3 at the back means we need 5 top players in the position, and with Azpi and Thiago Silva coming to the end, we can definitely imagine us making a major move, next summer if not this year.
