Chelsea have reportedly offered defender Kurt Zouma to Paris Saint-Germain with two other “English clubs” reportedly interested.
The 25-year-old, like the rest of Chelsea centre-backs, has been part of Lampard’s heavy rotation at the defence.
He featured 33 times in all competitions this season, including the 90-minute display against Leicester City in the FA Cup last Sunday.
However, if the team selection in the past four games since the Premier League restart tells us anything, it’s that both Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen are ahead of him in the pecking order.
And a report from Telefoot journalist Julien Maynard supports the idea.
The French journalist claimed that the Blues have offered PSG an opportunity to bring Zouma back to the Ligue 1.
While Zouma’s profile attracted PSG boss Thomas Tuchel, the report said there has been no discussion started between the two parties.
Maynard also further added that Chelsea have set an asking price of €30million (£27m) for the centre-back and there are two English clubs who are interested.
The price mentioned is quite a surprise here, considering Zouma still has a contract until 2023 at Stamford Bridge and he is an established Premier League and international player.
The former Saint-Etienne player is also Chelsea’s best defender in terms of aerial battles, winning 74% of his headed duels.
