With the departures of Rudiger and Christensen, Chelsea have stepped up their search for a guaranteed replacement in the centre of defence. This could be Jules Kounde. According to 'Estadio Deportivo', the Londoners have already set their machinery in motion for an express negotiation that could come to fruition even before the transfer window opens.
The sale of Chelsea to the American conglomerate headed by Todd Boehly, co-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers and LA Lakers, has prompted the Blues to start considering signings for the future.
Possibly the most pressing position is central defence. Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen will continue their careers in Spain.
Precisely, it seems that his successor could come from the Andalusian side. As 'Estadio Deportivo' reported, the English side have the firm intention of acquiring the services of Jules Kounde, who was already close to joining Stamford Bridge last season.
