Jules Kounde has arrived in Barcelona for his medical tests ahead of a move from Sevilla.
This was confirmed by football transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, on Thursday evening.
“Jules Koundé has now just landed in Barcelona in order to undergo the medical tests and then sign as new Barça player.
“Barcelona are set to announce Jules Koundé as new signing following Lewandowski, Christensen and Kessié,” Romano tweeted.
Barca have agreed a guaranteed €50 million fee plus add-ons for the French defender, who was set to join Chelsea earlier this summer.
However, following phone conversations with Xavi Hernandes, Kounde has now joined Sevilla’s LaLiga rivals.
