Arsenal approach Barcelona over Jules Kounde deal

Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing versatile 25-year-old Barcelona defender Jules Kounde this summer.

According to a report from Spanish publication SPORT, Arsenal have contacted Barcelona regarding a move for 25-year-old French international defender Jules Kounde in the summer transfer window.

Kounde has been linked with a move away from Barcelona this summer, and it will be interesting to see if Arsenal can secure his signature. The 25-year-old is a quality player who has proven himself in La Liga with Sevilla and Barcelona.

There is no doubt that he has the technical attributes to do well in the Premier League as well. Arsenal could certainly use more quality in their back four, and the 25-year-old would be a quality acquisition. He is versatile enough to operate as a full-back as well as a central defender. He could be a quality long-term asset for Mikel Arteta.

Barcelona are going through financial limitations, and it will not be a surprise if they decide to sell the player this summer. If Arsenal can come forward with a convincing proposal, the Spanish club could easily be tempted.

Jules Kounde would improve Arsenal

The French international has shown his quality in Spain, and he could be open to trying out a new challenge at this stage of his career. A move to England would be ideal for him, and he will look to establish himself as a key player for Arsenal if the transfer goes through.

Selling the defender this summer would raise funds for their own signings, and Barcelona will be hoping to recoup as much as possible for the 25-year-old defender. It will be interesting to see how the situation develops. Arsenal have made their approach now, and it will be interesting to see if they follow it up with an official proposal in the coming weeks.

Kounde is a reliable and versatile defender, and his distributions skills will also come in handy for Arsenal. He could help them build from the back and add a new dimension to their play. The 25-year-old will look to form a solid partnership with his compatriot William Saliba at the heart of the Arsenal defence.
