Club could be open to selling reported Tottenham target for £60m this summer – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Sevilla defender Jules Kounde has recently been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur and Marca are now reporting that the Spanish outfit are prepared to sell him for the right price.
According to reports, Sevilla value the player at around €70 million.
Apparently, they are under financial pressure and they will need to sell a key player in order to bring in their own signings.
SL View: Spurs might need to sell Kane to finance a move for Kounde
There is no doubt that the French international is a prodigious talent and he has the potential to develop into one of the best defenders in European football.
However, the €70 million (£60m) asking price is quite high and Spurs might struggle to pay that kind of money for the defender unless they sell a key player.
England international Harry Kane has been linked with a move to Manchester City and the striker’s departure could help the Londoners afford the French defender.
Spurs will have to bring in quality defensive reinforcements this summer and Kounde could prove to be a quality long term signing for them.
The 22-year-old was outstanding in the Spanish league last season and he could be the ideal long term replacement for Toby Alderweireld. He could form a quality partnership alongside Joe Rodon for years to come.
Kounde scored four goals and picked up an assist across all competitions last season.
The Frenchman is currently away on international duty with France and he will be hoping to help his country win the European Championships this summer.
