Chelsea transfer news: Jules Conde talks begin after the Blues agree to sell Kurt Zouma | football news

Chelsea are in talks to sign Jules Conde from Seville after agreeing a deal to sell Kurt Zouma to West Ham United for 25 million pounds.

Progress is being made in talks that would see Conde move to Chelsea in a £43m deal.

Chelsea wanted to sign a striker and central defender this summer.

They signed Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan for £97.5m two weeks ago.

Conde has been their number 1 defensive target this summer and there is growing confidence that a deal can be struck before Tuesday, with Zouma undergoing a medical at West Ham on Thursday.

Sky Sports News I previously mentioned that West Ham were eager to take down the defender, but the hurdle of personal terms and payment structure must be overcome before any move can be completed.

Clubs have negotiated a £25m fee in the region for the France international, who has not featured in any of Chelsea’s Premier League matches so far this season, and all parties involved are confident a deal can be struck.

Zouma has been David Moyes’ primary target to bolster his defense throughout the summer, although the Hammers were earlier linked with Fiorentina’s Nikola Milinkovic and Marseille’s Doug Caleta Carr.
