Chelsea and Manchester United target Jules Kounde has been priced at £68m by Sevilla, according to a report.
The Spanish side do not want to lose the 22-year-old centre-back, who has caught the attention of some of Europe's best clubs during his two years at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.
As well as Chelsea and Man United, Real Madrid are also interested in signing Kounde but may lack the funds for a big money signing this summer.
With the Red Devils having already signed Raphael Varane to bolster their defence, Goal claims that Chelsea are at the front of the queue for the Frenchman's signature and that they have begun negotiations to try to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
The report also states that Kounde would be interested in pursuing a new challenge in England, and that Chelsea are willing to include his compatriot Kurt Zouma in any deal.
Paris-born Kounde began his career at Bordeaux, before moving to Sevilla in 2019. In June, he made his senior debut for France in a friendly against Wales ahead of Euro 2020.
