Chelsea ace Kurt Zouma has revealed that he is open to playing at left-back should manager Jose Mourinho fail to sign a replacement for Filipe Luis, Express reports.
The 20-year-old is willing to serve as backup to first-choice full-back Cesar Azpilicueta, who is currently the only player capable of playing in that position.
Luis has completed a return to Atletico Madrid after he was unable to hold down a regular role under the Portugese boss.
Despite being a right-footed player, Zouma admitted that he is ready to quickly adapt to his new role if Azpilicueta becomes unavailable.
“Because I’m right-footed I have never played at left-back. It was different for me positionally so I had to learn quickly and adapt to it,” he said.
“It’s really not a problem because the boss needed me in that position and I have to give everything for the team.”
The Blues are currently in talks to sign Augsburg star Abdul Baba Rahman over a proposed £21.7million transfer, but his switch to Stamford Bridge is yet to be confirmed.
