Barcelona have agreed to sign France centre-back Jules Kounde from Sevilla for a reported transfer fee of 41.85 Million Pounds
However, Barca say the deal is subject to the 23-year-old passing a medical.
Kounde, who has won 11 France caps since his debut in 2021, had recently been linked with a move to Chelsea.
The defender has made 133 appearances for Sevilla, and won the Europa League in his first season there after joining from Bordeaux in 2019.
He also started in France’s 2-1 victory against Spain in last year’s Nations League final.
