Kurt Zouma’s agent announces “it’s a three-horse race” between Inter, Chelsea and Monaco for the St-Etienne defender.
The 19-year-old talent is hot property on the transfer market and ready for a January move thought to be worth £10m.
“Serie A is an interesting destination, as are Inter, for the tactical growth of the lad,” agent David Venditelli told L’Equipe.
“Of course he wouldn’t mind moving to the Premier League, hopefully to Chelsea, where he could work with Jose Mourinho or to Monaco in Ligue 1.
“There were other sides interested, such as Newcastle, but now it’s a three-horse race.”
Zouma is a France Under-21 international centre-back who is already a regular in the Saint-Etienne back line.
However, he is also somewhat hot-headed and is sitting out a huge 10-match ban for a horror tackle that broke Sochaux player Thomas Guerbert’s leg.
