Jules Koundé is one of the proper names of this summer. The central French wants to go out of Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán and the Seville, for the first time, will not put fetters so that it change of airs, sieimpre and when it arrive an offer that was attractive for the interests of the club.

The Barça will have to look for the formula to launch to the career by him prompt, before another team advance .
