Chelsea working on moves for Jules Koundé and Saúl Ñíguez

Chelsea are working on deals for La Liga based players Saúl Ñíguez and Jules Koundé.

Fabrizio Romano reports that a proposal involving a loan deal with a buy option has been made to Atlético Madrid for Saúl. There has been no official bid made from Manchester United for the 26-year-old. The Old Trafford outfit have also been linked with a move for the versatile midfielder.

Negotiations are also taking place for French defender Koundé, but the Premier League side need the Kurt Zouma to West Ham deal to go through before signing the Sevilla player. Romano also reports that Sevilla have in fact got a replacement lined up if the centre-back joins Chelsea before the end of the summer transfer window.
