Both Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen are free transfers and central defender Kounde seems a perfect fit.

But now Cataluyna Radio claim Barcelona are in ‘advanced negotiations’ with Sevilla for the France international.

There is a £51m deal on the horizon which would see the Catalan club also send a player in exchange.

Sergino Dest is reportedly the star most likely to travel to Andalucia.

Dest has already been offered in barca swap deals, including a bid to land Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.

Xavi is believed to be keen on Lewandowski as the manager is aiming for a natural goalscorer.

Former Wolves man Trincao and Clement Lenglet are also mentioned as options in the Kounde negotiations.

It would be a major blow to Chelsea’s transfer plans in the first window of the Todd Boehly era.

The Blues were “convinced” they will finally seal a deal after pursuing the Frenchman since last summer.

LaLiga club boss Jose Maria Cruz de Andres recently confirmed Kounde wants to continue – even naming Chelsea as an option.

He said: “Again, I’m sure the player respects Sevilla FC. He is happy with us.

“Kounde is not about the money. The point is that he wants to play in a more competitive side than Sevilla FC.

“I’m sure he’s a player attractive to teams like Chelsea, FC Barcelona, ​​Bayern Munich and teams like that.

“He wants to play in a more competitive team.”
