“I’m very happy, very proud. I’m coming to a big club, an ambitious club, and I’m also coming with ambition,” the 23-year-old said at his first press conference as a Barcelona player on Monday afternoon at the Catalan club’s training centre.

According to the Spanish press, Barca paid Sevilla €50 million, with 10 million in bonuses, for Kounde who has signed a five-year contract.

It’s true that I had another offer but I made the effort to wait for Barca to reach an agreement with Sevilla,” said Kounde.

“When I saw that it was possible, I chose Barca because I knew very clearly where I wanted to go.

Kounde joined Sevilla from Bordeaux in 2019 and said his “knowledge of LaLiga will make it easier to adapt”.
