The Super Lig giants Galatasaray are reportedly planning to bring in Chelsea central defender Kurt Zouma in this transfer market.

According to states from French news outlet RMC Sport, as quoted in a report from Get French Football News, the Turkish giants want to land defenders this summer and have pinpointed Zouma as a target.

France international spent the duration of the previous season on loan at Stoke City but did not enjoy the greatest of seasons. The Potters succumbed to relegation after a difficult time in the 2017/18 season.

Kurt Zouma is, however, set to return to the west London side this summer following the end of his loan spell.

The Blues were thought to hold the star in high esteem but were eager for him to go out on a temporary basis to gain greater senior-team experience. Although a summer transfer away could yet be on the cards, it looks like.

Galatasaray have reportedly made an approach to land the 23-year-old central defender, who has also been connected with a move to Turkish club Bursaspor in the latest times.
