Sevilla are reportedly expecting Manchester City to make an improved bid for centre-back Jules Kounde before the end of the summer transfer window.

Sevilla reportedly expect Manchester City to continue with their efforts to sign centre-back Jules Kounde.

On Friday afternoon, reports emerged that the Premier League giants had turned their attention to Benfica's Ruben Dias, with discussions said to have taken place between the relevant parties.

However, ESPN claims that Sevilla are awaiting further contact from City regarding their interest in Kounde.

The report suggests that the Europa League winners are expecting City to up their initial bid for the Frenchman, which was allegedly just below £50m.

Although Sevilla would prefer to retain the services of the 21-year-old, they may be open to a sale if City are prepared to pay over £60m.

That figure is similar to what Pep Guardiola is reportedly happy to spend on Portugal international Dias.
