Chelsea in crisis after missing out on Atletico Madrid star and Sevilla holding firm on Kounde fee

Posted by

The European champions arguably weren’t expecting the end of the summer transfer window to be as fraught as this.

Chelsea are a wonderful proposition for any player at present, given the kudos of being Champions League winners as well as having a squad of world class exponents.

In Thomas Tuchel, they also have one of the brightest minds in the game today, and the team stand a great chance of having a successful season unless they are blighted by injuries.

Despite taking all of the above into account, there are still two La Liga stars that look like they won’t be plying their trade at Stamford Bridge any time soon.

According to journalist, Fabrizio Romano, a deal for Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez is now completely dead in the water.

Furthermore, their pursuit of Jules Kounde looks destined to fail, after the Andalusians held firm on their €75m price for the highly-rated defender.

The Blues are expected to try one last time to prise the Frenchman away from Seville as the closure of the window appears on the immediate horizon.
