According to reports from France, Chelsea have offered Kurt Zouma to Paris Saint-Germain ahead of the summer transfer window.
The central defender has racked up 34 appearances across all competitions this term. However, Frank Lampard, who is looking to sign a central defender, doesn’t see him as indispensable to the Stamford Bridge club.
Zouma, who is valued at around £27m, could be sold by the Blues as funds need to be raised through player sales. With the aim of reducing the club’s wage bill, Zouma is the one who is most at risk of departing in the upcoming window.
En partance de Chelsea, Kurt Zouma a été proposé ces derniers jours au PSG. Thomas Tuchel apprécie son profil mais aucune discussion amorcée. Deux clubs anglais ont déjà montré leur intérêt. Le prix du défenseur français est estimé à environ 30M€. #Mercato @telefoot_TF1

The report claims that Spurs are heavily interested in signing the French defender, with Jose Mourinho ‘keen’ to land him.
Spurs need to sign a central defender this summer with Jan Vertonghen all set to leave the club upon the expiry of his contract.
Mourinho has suggested to Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to consider Zouma as a priority target in the upcoming window.
Zouma spent the 2018-19 campaign on loan with the Toffees, featuring in 32 league games and Ancelotti is keen on him.
Everton are heavily linked with a move for Lille’s Gabriel, but Zouma would be a terrific signing for them as well.
