Turkish outfit Besiktas have made an enquiry for Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma, according to Futbol Arena.

The report claims that Besiktas have made a move to sign the central defender on loan, with Premier League side Stoke City to rival them for his signature.

It was reported earlier this week that Chelsea are prepared to send Zouma out on loan.

However, the caveat for Chelsea is that Zouma will sign a new four-year contract first.

Zouma will put pen to paper on a long-term deal to commit his future to the club before joining either Besiktas or Stoke for a season of first-team football.

Antonio Conte clearly sees him having a future at the club and is keen to keep hold of Zouma in the long-term.

Tammy Abraham recently completed a similar move. The striker signed a bumper contract before signing for Swansea on a season-long loan.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Lucas Piazon have also left the club on loan this week.
