Chelsea Fans Have Reported Sevilla So Many Times Over Transfer Controversy That They've Lose Their Twitter Verification

Deadline Day is upon us and fans across Europe are desperate to get more players in and out of their football clubs, with some resulting to very interesting means to get their voices heard.

This includes Chelsea fans, who have sent several reports to Twitter about the official Sevilla FC account in the hope that it will increase the chances of defender Jules Koundé joining the club. This has seen Sevilla lose its official verification from Twitter and the famous blue tick.

Twitter has the power to remove blue ticks without notice for a number of different reasons. These include if an account consistently posts abusive or hateful content.

And whilst Sevilla have done neither of these things, it seems like Chelsea fans have used Twitter's complaint system to protest against the Spanish club's stubborn stance on Koundé's future.

According to L'Equipe, Chelsea's latest bid for the 22 year old Frenchman (rumoured to be in the region of €55m) has been rejected, with Sevilla holding out for €70m, a fee just shy of his release clause.

Koundé joined Sevilla in 2019 from Bordeaux and has made 65 appearances for Spain's oldest football club, scoring three times. The defender has also represented France on two occasions, making his debut for Les Bleus in an international friendly against Wales earlier this year.

The Blues are expected to be busy throughout deadline day, with a further bid for Atlético Madrid midfielder Saúl Ñíguez set to be launched later today. Plenty of outgoings are also on the cards, with rumours abound about the futures of England stars Ross Barkley and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

So while there is nothing concrete to report just yet, it's clear that Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel and the club's fans want the Koundé deal to be done and will have their eyes fixed on Sevilla's Twitter account over the next few hours, blue tick or not.
