Jules Kounde could well be part of the Catalan summer clean-up, but he will not be heading to Arsenal. The Gunners have other goals in mind.

The Gunners have been linked with Kounde on several occasions this summer, and Barcelona are reportedly open to a sale if they don’t secure Ronald Araujo’s exit first.

Koundé, departure still likely

However, journalist Matteo Moretto indicates that Arsenal are not considering signing the French defender this summer, as they are closing in on the signing of Riccardo Calafiori, whose price tag is expected to be in the region of €50 million.

Kounde, who is preparing to challenge Spain with Les Bleus, has spent much of his Barcelona career at right-back, and with only Julian Araujo and Hector Fort expected to be on the cards next season, there is a strong chance he will be pushed to the right wing again.

His form in recent months and at Euro 2024 has caught the eye, and it wouldn’t be surprising if other teams test the waters in the hope of bagging a bargain.
