Jules Koundé is interested in a move to Manchester City, and Sevilla are considering whether to sell for a compromised fee (Mail Sport).

City have discussed a £46M offer while Nicolas Otamendi has been mentioned as a potential ‘makeweight’ in a deal. Sevilla will push for more than £50M.

City want this settled soon, though Sevilla want the deal done next weekend after the Super Cup on Thursday v Bayern Munich.

Either way it seems it will be Kounde or Jose Maria Gimenez choisen as City’s next CB. Things have cooled off considerably with Kalidou Kouliobaly.

Kounde was a lynch pin at Sevilla and played real well last season. He is good on the ball and despite his height is very good aerially.

Thoughts on potential deal?
