Reports from French radio station RMC state highly rated defender Kurt Zouma is about to move to Chelsea for a reported £12.3 million.
The deal was reported to be in doubt after Chelsea failed to meet St Etienne's initial valuation of £18 million. Though it appears now that Chelsea have come to an agreement with the Ligue 1 side.
Chelsea are believed to have offer 19 yeard old Zouma a 5 year contract and all that is left is for him to agree terms and complete a medical.
With Chelsea having three center backs (potentially four center backs as Ivanovic can play there) fit and settled, Chelsea wish to have Zouma stay on in France and will have Zouma on their books for next season.
