Chelsea have changed a good chunk of their first team from this time a year ago, but one of the players doing best this season is one who has been around for a while.
Kurt Zouma has been at Stamford Bridge for a while, but he’s never had such a good or consistent run in the first team as he’s having now. The addition of Edouard Mendy behind him and Thiago Silva alongside him has truly elevated his game, and he’s now in the France squad too.
L’Equipe had an interesting discussion about the defender’s summer in the article you can see in the image below, or translated on SportWitness.
They say that the Blues wanted “nearly €45m” for the former St Etienne man, with Tottenham and Everton heading the pack but unwilling to pay that kind of fee.
If they wanted that much then, imagine how much they would ask now, after a string of superb games and 3 goals.
