Experience is not an issue for the 23-year-old Chelsea target.
With multiple Chelsea defenders set to leave the club this summer, due to their contracts expiring, defensive reinforcements are likely to be a priority for Thomas Tuchel. The report states that Sevilla are demanding in the region of £59m for the defender, who is yet to reach his prime at 23-years-old.
Despite his age, Kounde has racked up over 200 appearances and has competed in European competitions for the last four seasons. He’s also been capped 9 times by his country, so inexperience shouldn’t be an issue, even though he’s still considered a young talent, especially as a defender.
