Chelsea offered chance PSG to sign £27m-rated defender

By | July 16, 2020

Chelsea have allegedly offered Kurt Zouma to Paris Saint-Germain ahead of the summer transfer market.

Two English sides are also said to be interested in the French star, who is believed to be rated in the region of £27 million.

Kurt has struggled to nail down a starting berth at the club this season, rotating with Fikayo Tomori, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger since the turn of the year.

The centre-back has still racked up 34 matches across all competitions this term but isn’t considered indispensable to the Stamford Bridge club.

The west Londoners are currently in the process of overhauling their first-team roster ahead of next season, having already secured the signings of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.

Manager Frank Lampard is now targeting Ben Chilwell and Kai Havertz but a new central defender is also on the transfer shortlist.

And funds need to be raised through star sales in order to fund the deals while space also needs to be made on the wage bill.

With this in mind, Kurt is thought to be the centre-half most at risk of departing in the upcoming window.

The latest report from France claims the 25-year-old has already been offered to Ligue 1 giants PSG.

TF1 reporter Julien Maynard states a move from Chelsea has been proposed in the past few days while PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel is appreciative of Zouma’s talents.

However, no discussion has started between the sides over details of a transfer and two English outfits are also credited with an interest in Zouma.
