Chelsea may have £54m alternative to Jules Kounde with even higher ceiling than Frenchman

Newcastle have been vying to sign Kounde’s partner, Diego Carlos, this month, but Sevilla have frustrated them.

The 28-year-old has stated his desire to leave for St James’ Park, but Newcastle’s bid has yet to be accepted.

But if the La Liga giants eventually allow Carlos to depart, it could make them even more reluctant to lose Kounde in the summer.

That could make Chelsea turn their attention towards De Ligt in the coming months – and he could be an even better addition to their back line than the Frenchman.
