Kurt Zouma Set For Summer Move Away From Chelsea
It's set to be a busy summer at Stamford Bridge with Antonio Conte reinforcing his side ahead of the new campaign which will include Champions League football.
Chelsea return to the prestigious European competition as English champions following their brilliant season in the Premier League.
And ahead of next season, Conte is seeking to add new talents while offloading fringe players to make space for new signings.
(Ever wondered how his parents were inspired to name their son Kurt? This is brilliant.)
It seems increasingly likely that Kurt Zouma will indeed be one of those causalities. The French defender hasn't had a sniff, and is attracting plenty of interest from around Europe.
Just nine league appearances - and a further four in the cups - will prompt Zouma to seek a move away from Stamford Bridge in order to land first team football.

According to reports in both France and Spain, Zouma is already subject to interest from Marseille and Valencia.
French outlet L'Equipe claim Marseille's chief Andoni Zubizarreta has contacted Chelsea about his availability in the summer.

While Ser Cadena suggest a move to La Liga side Valencia could also be on the cards. Though a loan move to Ligue 1 appears to be Zouma's likely destination.
Chelsea are prepared to let him out on loan, and believe regular football will benefit the 22-year-old's development.

Since completing his move to England in 2014 from Saint-Etienne for £12 million, Zouma has failed to nail down a spot but was severely hampered following his gruesome knee injury.
Is a move away from Chelsea the right move for Zouma?
