'This club will be the end of me': Some Spurs fans fuming over transfer report involving £60m man
Some Spurs fans have hit out at speculation claiming reported Tottenham target Jules Kounde is now in advanced talks with Chelsea.
Spurs were heavily linked with the Sevilla and France centre-back earlier this summer.
Indeed, Tottenham apparently saw a swap deal proposal accepted by Sevilla, but this fell through.
Kounde has reportedly been holding out for a team that will be competing in next season’s Champions League.
This hasn’t gone down too well amongst some Tottenham fans, who have criticised their club on Twitter:
Always like Chelsea to jump in and take the players we are interested in… Always like Spurs to take forever to get a deal done! However I think he was never that keen on us… Hopefully we can still get this one over the line. #kounde #THFC #— Moses Rankin (@MosesRankin) July 27, 2021
Last season we wanted Skriniar and Dias— Anton🇩🇰 (@ThfcAnton) July 27, 2021
In our managerial hunt it looked like we were getting either Poch or Conte
Now we’re trying to sign Kounde and/or Romero but both deals are looking more and more unlikely
If only Spurs had CL football, Kounde would already be ours 😔— THFC Ndømbappe🗼⚜ (@KevinRandhawa) July 27, 2021

Spurs to miss out on £60m ace?
Kounde, a centre-back who can also operate as a right-back, has formed a solid partnership with Diego Carlos at Sevilla.
The £73,000-a-week ace has clocked up 89 competitive appearances for Sevilla, along with 70 at first club Bordeaux.
In addition, Kounde is already a European champion, having won the Europa League in 2020, and has won two France caps.
A report in Marca from a few days ago claimed Sevilla had placed a £60million price tag on Kounde.
