Sevilla sets asking price for Arsenal target Kounde

Sevilla has set an asking price for Arsenal target Jules Kounde ahead of a big summer for the Frenchman.

He is currently with France for the European championship that kicks off in a fortnight.

The defender was in fine form for Julen Lopetegui’s side in the just-concluded campaign and that caught the attention of several top European teams.

Arsenal has agreed to allow David Luiz to leave for free and because the Brazilian was an important presence in the Arsenal dressing room, he would certainly need to be replaced.

The Gunners know they will need to splash some cash before they can get their desired targets.

Kounde has interest from several top European teams and his release clause is 80m euros.

That fee would be too much for several of his suitors to pay, but Sevilla is keen to get rid of him.

Like most teams, their finances have suffered and they have fixed a lower transfer fee for him.

Mundo Deportivo reports that the Spanish side has made him available for transfer if any team pays 65m to 70m euros for his signature. 

That fee would still be too much for Arsenal to pay, but they can reach an agreement similar to what they had on Nicolas Pepe, to pay over several years.

    It may be crazybto pay that much money for a player no one heared about,having Saliba on loan in France.Arteta is really obsessed about defenders,having no midfielders at all.

    Absolutely No chance we would pay that sort of money for him.
    These stories are unrealistic and quite simply boring as any true Arsenal fan understands our transfer situation and what can be expected.

      Dom, JA’s decision makers are plainly not interested in what is likely or realistic They create articles, often from nothing at all and also from far fetched rumours, some of which they themselves create , simply to fill article space.
      I learned that lesson years ago and nothinghas changed since then. Money before truth every time; which is one of the reasons I regularly fall out with Admin PAT, AS HE DISLIKES PLAIN SPEAKING and this very post will likely be banned any moment now. Which would amply prove my post as true.

        That is absolute cr** as you well know.

        This is JustArsenal. If AANYTHING is reported about Arsenal we bring it here for discussion

        We do NOT make anything up but report what others are saying.

        I have also told you MANY times. If you want talk about opinions then go to the “OPinion”section.

        If you don’t want rumours, ignore the “ARSENAL RUMOURS” section.

        I can’t understand why someone so intelligent and learned as you cannot understand that simple difference despite being told umpteen times….

          Ad Pat, I do not accept this is at all cr..! You and I both know what I say is truth but for you to admit it is true would not help your quest for articles at any price. The constant rumours on this site never or extremely rarely hold any water, as all the longtime regulars on here know from experience of this site.

          How could they hold water though, as if even half of these rumours came true we would have a squad several times bigger than at present! That is truth Ad PAT , not CR.. at all!

          AND I PRIZE TRUTH AND INTENSELY DISLIKE THINGS THAT ARE PALPABLY NOT TRUE. Many other Gooners have remarked over the years how far fetched most of these rumours are, so it is far from me alone saying it.
