Sevilla has accepted Chelsea’s £55 million bid for Jules Kounde, according to reports, who will sign a long-term contract at Stamford Bridge.
The 23-year-old is set to get his desired move this summer after missing out on a transfer last summer to Chelsea.
Kounde has been the subject of interest from both Chelsea and Barcelona, but Thomas Tuchel’s side is set to win the race to finally land their man.
Talks have been ongoing between Chelsea and Sevilla, who wants to get his future resolved this week before they head to Portugal.
Barcelona had been told to offer straight cash if they wanted to beat Chelsea to a deal for the France international, but now the Blues are closing in on beating the Catalan giants to his signature.

Moreover, now Kounde is on the verge of becoming their third signing of the summer, adding to Raheem Sterling’s transfer.
Talks have advanced with Sevilla and now as reported by Jose Manuel Garcia in Spain, a bid has now been accepted.
Chelsea has had an offer of £55 million accepted by the Spanish side, which will see Kounde sign a five-year contract in west London.
