Fiorentina plotting January move for Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma

Fiorentina are considering a January move for Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma.

The Italian club were interested in the Frenchman during the recent transfer window but were rebuffed in their approach.

Fiorentina fans were frustrated with the lack of spending in the summer and are eager for signings to be made in January.

And it seems they may get their wish as, according to Corriere dello Sport, the Serie A side is ready to move for Zouma.

The Italians  are hoping they can persuade the 20-year-old to leave Stamford Bridge by promising him regular first-team football.

With Chelsea reluctant to sell, Fiorentina are set to propose an initial loan deal before making a permanent move at the end of the season.
