Athletic have announced that Arsenal technical director Edu Jules has contacted a customer eager to join Chelsea for Thomas Tuchel.
WHAT IS THE STORY?
The Athletic report that Arsenal technical director Edu has personally attempted to sign Sevilla defender Kuunde during the summer transfer window.
The Brazilian is contacting a potential deal for the 22-year-old France national defender.
Customers are eager to move to Chelsea, and the 2021 Champions League winners are also enthusiastic about the Frenchman.
As reported by Talk SPORT, Chelsea are offering £47m for the defender but Sevilla want their £68m release clause paid in full.
The report adds that the 2020 Europa League winner moved to Chelsea and is now angry with the Sevilla boss for not allowing him to join the Blues.
Kounde made 33 starters and one substitution in La Liga and six starts and one substitution in the Champions League for Sevilla last season.
