Chelsea are reportedly willing to consider bids for £36m-rated centre-back Kurt Zouma, who is understood to be wanted by Leicester City and Everton.

Chelsea are reportedly ready to cash in on Kurt Zouma this summer amid interest from Everton and Leicester City.

Zouma started Chelsea's opening two league games of the new Premier League campaign, but was absent from the matchday squad entirely at the weekend as Thiago Silva made his Premier League debut.

Frank Lampard also has Andreas Christensen, Fikayo Tomori, Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger as centre-back options, although the latter has also been linked with a move away this summer.

Le 10 Sport reports that the Blues would consider selling Zouma for the right price and value him at around £36m.

Everton and Leicester have both been linked with the Frenchman in their respective searches for defensive reinforcements before the transfer deadline next month.

Zouma spent the 2018-19 season on loan at Everton, and the Toffees are in the market for a new centre-back after Chelsea told them that Tomori was not available.

Leicester have been heavily linked with a move for James Tarkowski too, although Burnley are reluctant to sell one of their star men.

The deadline for transfers between top-flight clubs to go through is on Monday, October 5.
