Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma is being linked with a potential move to rivals West Ham – and some Hammers fans on Twitter are buzzing with the transfer speculation.
Sky Sports claims that West Ham are currently in talks with Chelsea about a potential deal for the 26-year-old. In addition, he’s been offered by the Blues in a potential deal for Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, but he would rather stay in London.
It is understood that West Ham are willing to pay £20million for the Chelsea centre-back. However, The Telegraph says that the Blues may consider granting an exit in a deal worth around £25million.
Zouma’s been involved in some special moments in a Chelsea shirt, but perhaps his time at Stamford Bridge is coming to an end. He’s still got two years remaining on his contract, but rumours about his exit are circulating.
Chelsea powerhouse Kurt Zouma can be star at West Ham
For Zouma, he’s got the quality to start for most teams in the Premier League. It’s worth pointing out he’s been a hit as a starter during certain stages of his Chelsea career. He should soon be reaching his physical peak and he’s got some solid experience under his belt.
David Moyes’ West Ham need a larger squad due to European football this season and Zouma will bring so much to them on the pitch.
Also, he’s an amazing character loved by his Chelsea teammates. It would be a great deal for rivals West Ham at £25million.
