Chelsea’s out-of-favour defender Kurt Zouma is attracting the interest of both Nice and Lyon, according to reports in France.
Following a lengthy injury layoff, the France international is likely to depart Stamford Bridge this summer, either on loan or permanently.
Zouma is not short of suitors and will have the option of returning to his native France, if Chelsea do make him available.
According to Telefoot, both Nice and Lyon are closely monitoring the 22-year-old’s situation at Stamford Bridge.
Nice, who finished a third in Ligue 1 last season, would be able to offer Zouma Champions League football, but Lyon would be a destination which may also attract the defender.
The centre-back, who has been capped twice at international level, is keen to play regularly next term in order to boost his chances of playing at next summer’s World Cup.
