You may have recalled a couple of articles in the past talking about José Mourinho’s interest in Kurt Zouma.
The Chelsea defender has been used sporadically by Frank Lampard this season, but there appears to be a willingness from the London club to sell the Frenchman if the right offer comes along.
However, Tottenham aren’t the only ones keen on Zouma, as TF1 reporter Julien Maynard explains the centre-back has been offered to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain ‘over the past few days’.
It’s explained Thomas Tuchel ‘appreciates’ the former Saint-Etienne’s starlet’s profile, but ‘no discussion has been started’ as of yet.
En partance de Chelsea, Kurt Zouma a été proposé ces derniers jours au PSG. Thomas Tuchel apprécie son profil mais aucune discussion amorcée. Deux clubs anglais ont déjà montré leur intérêt. Le prix du défenseur français est estimé à environ 30M€. #Mercato @telefoot_TF1

Maynard further reveals ‘two English clubs’ have ‘shown their interest’, with it being fair to say Tottenham is probably one of them.
As for the price, it’s said to be ‘estimated at around €30m’.
That’s relatively cheap for a still-quite-young-but-experienced Premier League defender, who, at 25 years of age, already has 135 English top-tier games under his belt.
