One of Karim Benzema’s esteemed France teammates apparently wants to join him at Real Madrid next season.
Benzema is busy on international duty with France at Euro 2020, with his side facing Switzerland in the last-16.
But he has reportedly been approached by one of his international colleagues regarding a switch of clubs for the 2021/22 campaign.
According to reports viaFootball Espana, Jules Kounde has confessed to the Real forward that he wants to play for the Spanish giants.
It is claimed Kounde’s ambition is to play for a club that competes for the biggest titles.
The 22-year-old has starred at the back for Sevilla since signing for the La Liga outfit in 2019 from Bordeaux.
He made his name in France’s top flight before earning himself a move to Spain, where he has enhanced his reputation as a centre-back.
He has two international caps to his name having made his debut against Wales in a friendly match.
Kounde, though, started France’s last Euro 2020 fixture, starting at right-back against Portugal.
The versatile defender is poised to leave Sevilla in the summer with a host of clubs keeping tabs on his situation.
Real, meanwhile, continue to be linked with a bunch of players ahead of a potentially hectic summer transfer window.
Sergio Ramos has departed the club, who have already snapped up former Bayern Munich man David Alaba on a free transfer.
They remain linked with the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba, among many others.
