Tottenham agree deal with Sevilla for Jules Kounde


Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Sevilla defender Jules Kounde in recent weeks.

According to Gianluca di Marzio, the Premier League club have now reached an agreement with the Spanish outfit regarding the French international.

They are expected to pay €30 million and Davinson Sanchez for the defender, and Kounde is currently considering the offer.

If the Frenchman refuses to join the London club, Milan Skriniar from Inter Milan could be an alternative for Spurs.

However, the Slovakian is not keen on leaving the Italian champions this summer.

Kounde is regarded as one of the most exciting young defenders around Europe right now and could be a quality long term addition for Tottenham.

The Londoners were vulnerable at the back last season, and Nuno Espirito Santo will be delighted if they can pull off the signing in the coming days.

Davinson Sanchez has been linked with a move away from Tottenham, and it is no surprise that he has been offered to Sevilla and cash for the French defender.

Tottenham cannot offer Champions League football next season, and that could be an issue for Kounde.

However, they have an ambitious project and a talented squad at their disposal.

Update: The player has rejected a move to Tottenham despite the two clubs reaching a total agreement.
