Lurking in the sports pages of a leading exponent of the tabloid market is an interesting piece of transfer speculation.

It suggests that Jose Mourinho would quite like to launch a raid on Stamford Bridge for a centre-back.

According to the good folk of The Sun, the central defender Mourinho is looking at is none other than Kurt Zouma.

Zouma, 20-years-of-age, has made a successful return from a bad knee injury, obtained in the home fixture with Manchester United last season, but has been unable to make a position in the starting eleven his own.

Mourinho, who has problems at centre-back with Phil Jones and Chris Smalling falling foul of some recent barbed comments, looks set to test Chelsea`s resolve to hang on to their young French defender.

But, with John Terry exiting Stamford Bridge this summer, it remains to be seen whether Antonio Conte would be prepared to lose another centre-back from his squad.

Here at Vital Chelsea we`ll keep an eye on developments.
