Chelsea ‘agree provisional terms defender Kurt Zouma’

Kurt Zouma could be on his way to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have agreed terms with St Etienne defender Kurt Zouma, according to reports in France.
Le10Sport suggest the Blues and Zouma have provisionally agreed a five-and-a-half year deal, with Chelsea just needing to finalise a fee with the 19-year-old’s club.

Speculation has been mounting this month over Chelsea’s interest in the youngster, with Zouma’s agent suggesting Inter Milan and Monaco were also chasing his client.

Kurt Zouma is a French Under-21 international. But if the reports emerging from France tonight are to be believed, it looks as though Jose Mourinho has won the race for his signature.

Zouma is expected to come at a price of around £10m, although it remains unclear where he will spend the remainder of the season should he put pen to paper in west London.

The French Under-21 international may be returned on loan to St Etienne, or he could join up with Vitesse Arnhem in Holland, where Chelsea currently have five players on loan.
