Chelsea face heartbreak on a second successive transfer target with Jules Kounde set to snub the Blues for Barcelona. Reports in Spain claim the Catalan giants have agreed a deal with Sevilla and the Frenchman has now agreed personal terms with Barca ahead of a potential switch to Camp Nou.

Chelsea were the firm favourites for Kounde earlier this week, when they tabled a proposal worth £55m but Sevilla are still yet to accept the offer.

Instead, the Andalusian club have been encouraging Barcelona to make their move as part of their plan to encourage an auction but it seems Kounde would favour a move to Barcelona over joining Chelsea.

SPORT in Spain now report Barca have agreed a deal worth an initial £42.5m plus £9m in add-ons.

The £51.5m offer is worth slightly less than the money presented by Chelsea but it seems Sevilla are prepared to move ahead with the transfer, which still satisfies their valuation of the defender.

Kounde is now expected to seal his switch across Spain next week as Barcelona’s excessive spending continues despite their recent financial struggles off the field.
