Jules Koundé’s move from Sevilla to Chelsea is hanging in the balance, according to Sky Sports.

Chelsea had been close to agreeing a deal for around €50 million but Sevilla are now thought to be asking for closer to the French defender’s €80 million release clause.

Koundé wants to move to the European champions and was left out of Sevilla’s squad for their 1-1 draw with Elche at the weekend.
