Arsenal are interested in signing Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma, according to Italian football expert Emanuele Giulianielli, via the Daily Star.
Arsenal have been linked with a number of top centre backs across Europe as Wenger attempts to strengthen his defensive line this summer. According to Giulianielli, Wenger has now turned his attention to Chelsea’s Kurt Zouma and the French man has already asked Antonio Conte about the possibility of signing the French defender. This was revealed via his twitter handle. The Italian Journalist tweeted:
“Contacts between Wenger and Conte: Arsenal want Zouma from Chelsea.”
Chelsea are unlikely to sanction the exit of Zouma as the young centre back was a key man in the Blues defense before his serious knee injury during the season.
Wenger is said to be very keen on signing a young Centre back this summer as Mertesacker and Koscielny are already in their thirties.
Zouma will definitely be a star for the future but bringing the defender to the Emirates will be almost impossible. The defender has been impressive since moving to Chelsea in 2013 and has continued to improve for the West London side. It remains to be seen if Wenger can pull off the remarkable signing this summer with Champions League football to offer.
