The Frenchman who has been the club’s back-up defensive target, is regarded as one of the best defenders for his age group. He enjoyed a stellar 2019/20 season in La Liga, making 29 appearances as his side comfortably finished in the top four.
The young Frenchman Kounde would certainly be viewed as a prospect for the future with his natural defensive talent coupled with blistering pace for a central defender.

We should just buy Koulibaly at 75m. 77m plus player is just way too much for a guy who just had his breakthrough season. He doesn’t have UCL/title challenging experience either.

way overpaying for some one who just broke through can surely get upamencano for around 50/60

He’s 21 very solid investment

The guy had 0 injuries in the past 3 seasons, he is great in positioning, passing, dribbling, he is good in air and has an eye for an opening pass. He can tackle and is an incredible fighter, future world class defender and already a great player,
