Sevilla centre-back Jules Kounde becomes a summer transfer target for Barcelona, according to a report.
Barcelona are supposedly checking out the possibility of finalizing Sevilla defender Jules Kounde this summer.
The Spanish champions are anticipated to be in the market for a minimum of one new centre-back ahead of the 2020-21 campaign due to the unpredictability surrounding the future of Samuel Umtiti
According to Sport, Quique Setien’s side are admirers of Kounde and might possibly try to sign the 21- year-old when this summer’s transfer window opens for business.
The former France Under-20 international joined Julen Lopetegui‘s side from Toulouse last summer and has actually made 26 appearances for his Spanish club during the existing season, contributing 2 goals in the process.
Barca might apparently try to utilize Sevilla’s interest in Ivan Rakitic to strike a deal for Kounde, who has 19 La Liga getaways to his name during the 2019-20 campaign.
The Catalan giants, on the other hand, are stated to be closing in on a deal for Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez
