According to ABC Sevilla, a local source, Jules Kounde is ‘confident’ his move to Chelsea will go through.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will have a meeting with manager Thomas Tuchel and director Marina Granovskaia to make a final decision whether to sign the center-back or not.
Tuchel is a huge admirer of the Frenchman and wanted to sign him when he was the PSG manager.
Now Chelsea have to understand how they want to complete the deal with Sevilla, as Kurt Zouma has so far refused to join the Spanish club in a part-exchange deal.
However, there is optimism an agreement will be reached despite Chelsea preparing to spend €115m on Lukaku.
