Arsenal Keen On Kounde

Arsenal Keen On Kounde

Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Barcelona defender, Jules Kounde in the summer transfer window.

The 25-year-old defender may be sold due to Barcelona’s current financial situation and they will likely ask for an offer of about €60 million.

Whether Arsenal are willing to make the payment is still up in the air. There’s no denying that the Gunners’ defense could make use of more depth and talent.

Kounde and his countryman William Saliba could create an intense bond in the center of Mikel Arteta side’s defensive line.

According to Spanish publication, SPORT as reported by Caught Offside, Arsenal have already communicated with Barca about a potential transfer.

The Catalan club have been requesting for more time from the Premier League club before giving a definitive reply on the France international.

Whether the two teams can work out a deal for the versatile defender this summer will be noteworthy as Hansi Flick’s side are presently not well stocked in defence.

Kounde has shown his quality in La Liga having played for Sevilla before moving to Barcelona in 2022. He might prove to be a vital member of Arsenal’s squad as he is skilled enough for the Premier League as well.

The Gunners will be driven to succeed in the forthcoming season after missing out on the league title in the last two campaigns. To compete with Manchester City, they need to swoop for players of elite calibre.

The north-London club will undoubtedly get better with the addition of the 2022/23 Laliga winner, who also has the ability to play as a full back.

Kounde is currently representing France at the ongoing 2024 European Championship in Germany.

He featured for Les Bleus when they defeated Belgium in the Round of 16 courtesy of an own goal from Jan Vertonghen and subsequently booked their place in the quarterfinals where they will face Portugal on Friday.
