The Spaniard has featured in a handful of games this season, but he’s now fallen behind David de Gea as Spain’s No 1.
Chelsea would have to take a huge hit on the record £71.6m fee they paid to sign Kepa back in 2018, but he would still fetch a reasonable price.
Chelsea’s biggest asset though may come in the form of Christian Pulisic, who has found himself on the outskirts of Tuchel’s squad when everybody is fit and firing.
There have been suggestions that Liverpool could look to swoop in with a bid and Chelsea would supposedly listen to offers of around £42m.
While selling Barkley, Kepa and Pulisic may not fully fund moves for Kounde and Tchouameni, it would go a long way to saving some money.
And Chelsea in the meantime would immediately be strengthening their squad in two key areas heading into the business end of the season.
