Chelsea have set their asking price for defender Kurt Zouma amid interest from Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and Roma.

The Frenchman has two years left on his contract, but there has been speculation that he could be sold this summer.

Zouma made 36 appearances last season, but he was ignored for the big matches towards the end of the campaign.

He is currently the fifth-choice centre-back behind Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta.

The Blues are keen on landing an elite centre-back this summer, and this is likely to pave the way for Zouma's departure.

According to RMC Sport, Roma have made a loan approach with the option to buy, but the Blues prefer to sell Zouma.

They have set an asking price of around €30m for the former Saint-Etienne graduate, who was recently with France at Euro 2020.

The club have identified Jules Kounde and Raphael Varane as potential centre-back targets, but the latter could move to Manchester United.
