French starlet Kurt Zouma has confirmed he has held talks with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho over a January transfer to Stamford Bridge, according to the Daily Star.

The 19-year-old is considered one of the most in demand young players in Europe, and has also been linked with Manchester United and Liverpool.

But the St Etienne defender – who has been mentioned as a future France captain by manager Didier Deschamps – has revealed he is ready to move abroad.

“Well, it’s true. There has been an advanced contact,” Zouma said.

“At first I thought it was a joke. But I quickly took his call seriously. A great man like Jose Mourinho phoning a small player like Kurt Zouma, it’s nice.

“It does not happen to you every day and it is a great sign of respect and trust.

“I will always take Chelsea. I loved this club since childhood and blue  is my favourite colour.

“In my head, it is clear: I want a change. When going abroad, it’s make or break. But it is a risk worth taking.”

The defender’s agent Alexandre Bonnefond has hinted this month that a move to the Premier League is edging ever closer.
