‘Don’t See Him Leaving’ ‘£80m No Less Than That’ Fans On Social Media Respond To Reports That Chelsea Star Will Hand In Transfer Request

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma is on the verge of handing in a transfer request, according to reports in England.

The Frenchman is said to be worried that he won’t get enough game time next season ahead of next summer’s European Championships.

Fans on Twitter are sceptical about the accuracy of the story:

With Lampard having recently stated that Zouma is part of his first-team plans for next season, it’s highly unlikely that the 24-year-old would be allowed to leave even if he wanted to.

Chelsea’s transfer ban means they wouldn’t be able to replace the centre-back and with Antonio Rudiger likely to miss the start of the season due to a knee injury, Lampard will need Zouma to play a role.

The Blues boss may see Fikayo Tomori as another option, but the 21-year-old lacks experience at the top level and it would be a big call to let Zouma leave and keep him instead.
