Chelsea are reportedly preparing another transfer bid for Jules Kounde.
The Blues are determined to bring in the highly-rated Sevilla defender this summer.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea are in touch with the Spanish club and are lining up a new bid for Kounde.
Sevilla will reportedly not accept a last-minute sale, before the transfer window shuts, which increases the need for Chelsea to agree a deal over the coming days.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have been attempting to bring in Kounde this summer but have yet to reach an agreement.
Kounde has a £68million release clause but Sevilla may be willing to accept a lower player-plus-cash offer.
Chelsea want to include defender Kurt Zouma in a potential transfer.
And West Ham are also keen to sign Zouma although the 26-year-old does not appear to be keen on a move across London.
Kounde, 22, has won two caps for France and his performances for Sevilla have earned him rave reviews.
The defender made 49 appearances in all competitions for his club last season, scoring four goals.
Champions League winners Chelsea are bidding a formidable squad with new signing Romelu Lukaku scoring the opening goal at Arsenal in his first appearance back at the club.
