Van Dijk, Matip and Gomez are all expected to be fit for the new Premier League season, meanwhile RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate was added to the ranks at the start of the transfer window.
Schalke’s relegation from the Bundesliga means Kabak is likely to move on this summer, and Sevilla could be the side willing to take a chance on the young defender.
Bild claim that the Spanish side are prepared to offer £14.5million for the Turkey international, which would pave the way for Kounde to depart.
Sevilla are keen for Man United or Chelsea to meet the Frenchman’s £68.4million release clause, having only signed the young star for £21million in 2019.
Both Premier League sides would be able to offer Kounde Champions League football next season, though the Red Devils’ recent purchase of Raphael Varane could make a move to Stamford Bridge a more attractive proposition.
