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.

But it appears he has his heart set on a move to the iconic Santiago Bernabeu.

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.
