Sevilla Defender Emerged As Top Transfer Target For Man Utd
Arsenal are reportedly ready to enter the running for Jules Kounde after Sevilla ready to accept £50m for his services.
The 22-year-old burst onto the scene last campaign and has once again impressed for Spanish giants this season, earning regular rumours with Europe’s top teams.
Arsenal’s direct PL rivals Manchester United are among those to have been tipped to make a move for the France Under-21s international to partner him with Harry Maguire from the start of next campaign.
However, The Express reports that fellow Premier League side Arsenal, who are themselves looking to strengthen at the defensive end, may also now be in the mix to secure services of Kounde.
The North London giants had little hope of matching Sevilla’s previous £70m price tag for the former Bordeaux ace, however, Los Nervionenses are believed to have knocked £20m off that sum.
Kounde is also a rumoured target for Real Madrid and previously came close to making a switch to Manchester City earlier in the January.
However, now Man Utd and Arsenal remain the only two teams that have expressed interest for his services.
