£54m Barcelona star on way to Chelsea after Maresca ‘personally asks’ for signing!

It has been claimed that new Chelsea boss Enzo Maresca has told the club that he would like Jules Kounde signed from Barcelona

Despite the fact that Chelsea have yet to officially confirmed Enzo Maresca will be boss next seasons – that has not stopped the speculation that Ted Boehly is still eager to sign a few more players in the transfer window.

Kounde is a player that Chelsea have been linked with ever since his days with Sevilla – but have never been able to convince the Frenchman that a move to the Premier League is one he needs to make.

However – Kounde’s future in Spain now looks uncertain as the Spaniards are going to sell a number of players in the coming transfer window in hope that they can freshen up the side after a disappointing campaign.

He has already attracted interest from several European giants including Paris Saint-Germain, Inter and Manchester United

But now reports in Spain have claimed that Enzo Maresca has personally asked the board to sign Raphinha from Barcelona as the Brazilian star fits the style of play that he would like to employ at Stamford Bridge.

CHELSEA have just allowed Thiago Silva to leave the club and head back to Brazil – so they will need to sign a ready-made replacement for the world class act.

But Kounde is a man that they have wanted for some time and is a player that could be one of the best – he would be a brilliant signing.

However – despite all the speculation and all the rumours – we would be very surprised to see him actually depart the Spanish giants and fully expect him to stay as he has shown no real desire to want to depart the Camp Nou, or even play in the Premier League.

But – in the world of football anything could happen and the right offer could get him all signed up by CHELSEA, if they actually want the man.
