But Manchester United are the leading contenders to secure his signature, according to bookmakers Betfair.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are available at 3/1 to be Kounde's next destination, either this January or at anytime in the future.
And that price could soon shorten after claims United are closely monitoring the 22-year-old's availability ahead of a summer approach.
The Red Devils are still on the look-out for a centre-back to partner captain Harry Maguire with Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe all failing to convince.
Spanish heavyweights Real Madrid are next in the betting market at 4/1 with Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona both locked together at 6/1.

Premier League champions Liverpool follow at 8/1 with Jurgen Klopp in desperate need of a central defender.
Manchester City are the outsiders of the bunch at 12/1 having spent over £100m last summer on Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake.
Kounde joined Sevilla from Bordeaux for £22.5m in July 2019.
He made 40 appearances during his debut season in all competitions and helped the club achieve a record SIXTH Europa League success.
And his exploits have seen his valuation nearly treble with Sevilla quoting around £60m for his signature.
Kounde isn't the only centre-back linked with a move to Old Trafford.
Real Madrid legend Sergio Ramos is also being tipped to join Solskjaer and Co at the Theatre of Dreams.
The 34-year-old has entered the final 6 months of his contract and has reportedly decided to leave the Bernabeu after 15 years.
Paris Saint-Germain are hot on his heels – but the player's preference is United, according to The Mirror.
