Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma is already planning his exit from Stamford Bridge this summer amidst reported interest from Tottenham Hotspur, according to a report from ESPN.

The report indicates that the Frenchman’s representatives have already started working on trying to get him a move away and that Jose Mourinho would like to take him to Spurs.

The 25-year-old will apparently be available for £25m and it looks like Chelsea are willing to let him leave, although it remains to be seen if they’d be willing to let him join a direct rival in Spurs.

Chelsea are still to book their place in the Champions League for next season and if they do qualify for it, which you could predict with a free bet no deposit, then that could impact Zouma’s decision.

If Chelsea are happy with letting Zouma leave, then that makes sense if Frank Lampard has decided that he can do better.

However, what The Blues should avoid, if at all possible, is selling him to a direct rival like Spurs.

Of course, a lot will depend on interest from elsewhere and what other clubs, particularly those abroad, are willing to spend, but if they can, Chelsea will be best served to let Zouma move to another club and not to a team who Chelsea will likely be competing with domestically in the coming years.
