Chelsea fans are sitting here bemused in the Transfer Tavern after reading a story in the Daily Star that young defender Kurt Zouma could be on the move.
Serie A club Fiorentina are said to be tracking the French centre back and are weighing up a bid for his services.
However after featuring in the first four games of the season and having a noticeable impact in his first season at the club – which saw him win the Premier League, it’s incredibly difficult to see the Blues letting him go.
Chelsea were chasing defender John Stones for much of the summer transfer window – only to be unsuccessful. However with them being likely to rekindle their interest in the future that could be the reason clubs think Zouma would be available for transfers.
Our regular Chelsea fans however have been full of praise for the defender since his arrival, and have been heard saying they would love to see the two playing alongside each other and what a solid partnership the two of them could be.
Our landlord also thinks the defender is a class act as was quoted as saying ‘in my opinion, he could be one of the best in the world in a few years. The guys a tank for a 20 year old and could go on to be a long term replacement for John Terry and even be Chelsea captain’.
Chelsea fans. Have you been as impressed with Zouma since his arrival as our regulars have? Would you keep him if you sign Stones in the future? Let us know below!
