Stoke City supporters in the Transfer Tavern are delighted at the prospect of signing Kurt Zouma.
Mark Hughes is on the verge of completing one of the most prominent deals of the summer with the potential arrival of Kurt Zouma.
The 22-year-old established himself as Chelsea’s most prized defender before his horrendous knee injury against PSG in the Champions League, since his injury the Frenchman has struggled to testify himself as a mainstay in Antonio Conte’s defence.
Accordingly, the Italian has sanctioned the departure of Zouma to give the Frenchman the best possible opportunity to revive his best form.
The arrival of Zouma will notably enhance the Potters’ defence, and he could forge a very productive relationship with club captain Ryan Shawcross.
The 22-year-old is a superb centre-half, and when he’s in his best form, there aren’t many superior talents in the Premier League.
He’s quick, agile, athletic, and incredibly physical.
There isn’t a player in the Premier League who can rival Zouma’s ability to complete last-ditch challenges, all he requires is consistent first-team involvement and he will thrive.
In addition to his remarkable defensive abilities, Zouma is also highly regarded for his attacking contribution.
He’s a threat from set-pieces, which historically has been a great tool for Stoke.
He also provides versatility; he was positioned as a holding midfielder in the final of the Capital One Cup in 2015 when Chelsea triumphed 2-0 against Tottenham Hotspur.
Our landlord believes unequivocally that the signing will benefit Stoke.
