The 23-year-old France international has long been a target at Stamford Bridge, with a deal pending last summer before Sevilla raised his price.

Chelsea reportedly offered £47m last summer for Kounde with a deal that seemed imminent, but the Spanish side held firm on their £68m release clause, nullifying any deal.

Reports from Spain then claimed that the centre-back was furious that his dream move was denied and stopped taking calls from manager Julen Lopetegui and director of football Monchi.

Now, however, The Sun are reporting that the deal is back a year later, with both sides closing in on £59million.

But Tuchel will have to wait for his latest signing, with the club still unable to complete any deals during outgoing owner Roman Abramovich’s tenure.

British government sanctions imposed on the Russian oligarch due to his home country’s invasion of Ukraine have halted any dealings, but the impending takeover of Boehly will allow Chelsea to resume business as usual. transfer.
