FC Barcelona look set to miss out on the signing of Jules Koundé.

The French defender is now closing in on a move to Chelsea.

César Azpilicueta is expected to be Barça’s only defensive signing for now.

Barça resigned to losing Koundé

The Spanish club are starting to believe that Koundé will seal a move to west London, according to Relevo.

Some at Barça have already accepted defeat in their pursuit of the 23-year-old.

It is understood that the Blues’ agreement with Sevilla is now in the final stages.

Other reports claim that Todd Boehly’s club have submitted a €65million bid.

Barcelona look set to now step up their interest in Azpilicueta.

The arrival of the Spaniard is expected to mean that they will no longer be in a rush to find an alternative to Koundé.

Azpilicueta’s arrival just a matter of days
