That’s according to a recent report from Chelsea-focused journalist Simon Phillips, who claims the Blues are ahead of Barcelona in the race to secure the Frenchman’s signature.
After developments today, Chelsea are getting close to agreeing a £51.1m fee to sign Jules Kounde. As of right now, no offer from Barcelona. Kounde is open to both teams and has previously already agreed verbal terms to join Chelsea.https://t.co/eigCuJtf02
