Disappointment For Chelsea As The Latest Bid For 22-year-old Target Is Rejected
Sevilla has rejected Chelsea’s approach to include Kenedy in Jules Kounde deal.
According to reports from Goal (h/t Express), Chelsea Fc has been left disappointed after suffering a setback in their attempt to sign Jules Kounde.
Sevilla has rejected a new offer that involves cash + Chelsea player Kenedy. However, the report has it that the Blues aren’t giving up.
Chelsea are expected to return with an improved bid to land the 22-year-old highly-rated defender. The defender is wanted by Tuchel in his attempt to strengthen the Chelsea defence line.
The report suggests that the Blues are not willing to pay the £68m release clause in the defender’s current contract. Adding that Chelsea already has their first offer rejected, the offer which includes Kurt Zouma plus £30m.
Kenedy spent the last two seasons on loan with Spanish clubs Getafe and Granada respectively. Chelsea’s attempt to send him back to Spain, this time on a permanent basis to Sevilla has been rejected by the Spanish club, as the La-Liga team are not interested in the player.
