Welcome to January transfer window news, rumours, gossip on the deadline day across the Europe
Haaland is arguably the most sought-after player in world football.
With a £64m release clause next summer, the Norwegian is set to be bid for by most of the elite sides in Europe.
With Timo Werner failing to reach the levels expected of him and Romelu Lukaku showcasing his desire to leave, Haaland could join Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge.
Kounde was linked with a move to west London through the entirety of the summer, although a move was not entertained by his club Sevilla.
The Andalusian outfit did not have enough time to seek a replacement, meaning Kounde was forced to stay.
And with three centre-backs out of contract in the summer, a deal looks as likely as ever to happen.
