Zouma Deal Close

Zouma Deal Close

As the January transfer window enters it`s final few hours, the overnight news intimates that Chelsea are very close to signing a defender.

It would appear that our apparent interest in the St Etienne centre back Kurt Zouma could see a deal being struck today.

The reports we stumbled across infer that Chelsea and the French club have agreed a fee of somewhere in the region of £13.3 million.

However, we`re unlikely to see the player appear in a Chelsea shirt this season as we understand one of the terms and conditions of the deal was that Zouma would be loaned back to St Etienne until the end of the current season.

Hopefully a top future prospect. But we could have really used a striker, even a loan move for some promising young player, just another option besides Eto'o. Torres is getting more injury prone, while Jose just doesn't seem to trust BA one bit. It's a big weakness for us right now. :(

Good buy. He is strong, fast n good in the air. He may also become a future captain not just in cfc but france too. Good luck KURT ZOUMA!!

There is a picture of him flying around on twitter where he was holding the chelsea shirt over there at cobham. Don't know how original the picture is but we should expect a confirmation from the club very soon if true.

Good buy but are we going to trust him enough to include him in next year team? Not sure. Trust me he will be loan out next season and gradually fade away. We already have few players of similar qualities on loans.

blue5, Wallace doesn't have a visa and he can't set foot in England at the moment, so unless Chelsea find a new club to loan him to they can't recall him.

Fernando of Porto would free Matic and Mikel to attack. He's a real DM.

Unnecessary signing, we don't need another young CB.... what has happened to Chalobah, Kalas, Ake, Omeruo.... Just bring back PVA and Bertrand for LB, move Azpi back to RB, and we will have Cahil, JT, Luiz at CB... Iva can be back-up for both RB and CB... 7th signing of the season....

Mikel can attack and score. He does it for Nigeria. You know that.

Why spend 13-16m on a player that may not get into the 1st team in 2 years? What becomes of the so many 18-24 year old defenders we have loaned out/in the academy? At times am forced to think we just buy players in order to stop our rivals having them. Hope he proves me wrong!

@F V. You keep talking about other players as "real DM's" so you don't think we have already got any. Come on man stop putting down our team. It must be such fun being you!
