Agent of Chelsea and Manchester United target Kurt Zouma has revealed Saint Etienne defender is interested in making a switch to Stamford Bridge.
The 19-year-old has been a transfer target for the west London club. While the Premier League champions have maintained their interest as the Manchester Evening News report claims David Moyes was eyeing for a move in signing the centre-back January.
Zouma's agent David Venditelli believes his client can develop under Jose Mourinho, should he make a switch to Stamford Bridge. The defender's representative also revealed that English outfit Newcastle United have made contact for the player's signature.
Venditelli also admitted that any possible transfer move in January is still an option, while loaning Zouma back to Etienne for the rest of the season.
"At Chelsea, Zouma could work with Jose Mourinho and he could help Kurt to make big improvement. That's why Chelsea is also an interesting option for us. This [Loan Move to Etienne] could allow Kurt to end the season in an atmosphere he now know for years, while securing his future." Venditelli explained.
The Blues are likely to face competition in signing Zouma after Venditelli admitted that clubs from Italy and Germany have already made approach for the centre-back's services. However, the French defender is considering options between Chelsea, Inter Milan and AS Monaco.
"We had many contacts with other teams, from Italy, Germany, also Newcastle, but we've chosen to only consider offers from Chelsea, Monaco and Inter. Serie A and especially Inter is a welcome destination for Kurt. In Italy he could improve a lot from a tactical point of view," Zouma's agent stressed.
"AS Monaco is also very interesting for us because the project is important and the team has big ambition," he concluded.
The former Real Madrid manager has the services of Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Chelsea skipper John Terry as the first choice defenders in the central defending position. Should the Blues manage to land Zouma, it could strengthen their back four and the Frenchman could be a long-term replacement for the former England international.
