When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of Kounde’s future, Campbell said:
“Kounde is a top, top player and it looks like he could be on his way out of Sevilla.
“I cannot see Spurs getting him though, to be honest with you.
“The way the manager situation has been handled there, I cannot imagine him wanting to join. It just doesn’t make any sense.
“I’m sure some Champions League clubs will be interested in signing him as well.”
