The Premier League continues to claim the talented defender
The English League is determined to have one of the best defenders in the world today, this time it is the Liverpool FC who has been plotted to sign Jules Koundé. The highly talented French defender could join the Anfield team in the next few days, and the Sevilla FC I would be willing to expedite the operation as soon as possible.
It should be remembered that in the summer market last year, the French defender was on the radar of the Chelsea FC, but this offered an insufficient figure. He was then probed by Newcastle United, but interest did not transcend. Now is the club reds the one who has announced that he will pay the clause 80 kilos to seize the services of the young player.
Liverpool awaiting a medical report to execute the signing of Jules Koundé
The English team has already expressed the desire to sign the central defender, and how they intend to do so. The sports management of Seville has already given them the green light, although the coaching staff does not agree with the operation. However, the signing is on standby, due to a suspicion of injury that could postpone the move until the summer market.
The French defender was touched in the last game of the nervión box against Getafe CF, where they certainly won 1-0. Although they have not yet confirmed if it is an injury, and if it were, we would have to wait for its complexity. If the player only has a slight contusion, the operation will take place in this market, and Koundé will play in the Premier League from this January.
With the departure of Koundé to Liverpool, Lopetegui goes into search and transfer mode
The Basque coach does not want the French defender to leave his squad, and even less when it comes to the role he has in his scheme. However, administrative decisions are made by the presidency and the sports management. So the only thing he can do from his position is to find his replacement and propose names to the board of directors.
Right now one of the most popular is that of the Dutch Sven Botman, a very talented defender for Losc Lille. The French club has already stated that its starting price starts at 40 kilos. However, the operation becomes complicated since there are more than 5 teams behind him, and they are the ones with large checkbooks. Lopetegui has other names on his agenda to analyze in detail.
