Barcelona confident of Kounde steal.
Barcelona have ‘maximum confidence’ in winning the race to sign Sevilla centre-back Jules Kounde this summer.
According to AS, Barcelona have spoken to the Frenchman and he is interested in a move to Camp Nou this summer.
Chelsea were initial frontrunners after narrowly missing out on his signature last summer, and Thomas Tuchel is expected to sign at least two centre-backs ahead of the 2022-23 season.
But the Blues might have to turn their attention elsewhere, with Barcelona closing in on their long-term target.
