According to reports, Barcelona is willing to let go of defender Jules Kounde in 2024.

After fierce competition, the Catalan giants secured a contract for the France international, who was estimated to cost over €50 million, in July 2022.

Club executives at the time disregarded their financial difficulties in order to complete what they considered to be an important transfer, and Barcelona’s La Liga title was ultimately regained.

But Barcelona may have to make significant cuts between January and July of next year due to a lower pay cap for the following season.

Several of their players are being watched concurrently; according to a report, Bayern Munich is keeping an eye on Ronald Araujo.

Although the Uruguayan international has just over two and a half years left on his deal, Barcelona is reportedly trying everything to make sure they keep him around for the long run.

Although Marcos Alonso is also scheduled to leave Camp Nou in the summer, there won’t be much room on the wage sheet when Xavi probably wants the team to try to sign Joao Cancelo of Manchester City on a permanent basis.

Fichajes claims that a scenario where Barcelona is content to profit from Kounde in one of the upcoming two transfer windows could occur.

According to reports, Barcelona would be persuaded to sell the defender—who can play both right and centre back—for an offer of €40 million (£34.46 million).

Despite the fact that the 25-year-old has made 15 starts and one substitute appearance this season, Barcelona appears to feel that his performance level has decreased.

According to the source, Arsenal might keep an eye on Kounde’s progress when Mikel Arteta wants to bolster his defensive alternatives.

Because Arsenal must adhere to FFP laws, acquiring Kounde during the winter transfer window may not be feasible, but the Gunners may try to let players go.

Although Kounde’s lack of height for a defender may cause Chelsea to seek elsewhere since Mauricio Pochettino is rumoured to be keen for more players with physical presence, other previous suitors, like Chelsea, may make a comeback for the player.
