Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is now willing to listen to offers for Tottenham Hotspur target Kurt Zouma, according to Sky.
Zouma has played frequently for Chelsea this term, and started the FA Cup final, but Tottenham are hoping that a deal can be done.
The Daily Express suggested last month that Jose Mourinho was confident of getting a £25 million deal for Zouma over the line this summer.
And it may be that the Portuguese boss’s wish is becoming more and more likely to happen.
Lampard is now said to be open to offers for Zouma, with the Chelsea boss willing to sell the Frenchman.
Whether they would sell to a direct rival in Tottenham remains to be seen.
However, Zouma could be an intriguing addition for Spurs, as he could help to strengthen their backline for next campaign.
With Jan Vertonghen departing, Tottenham may want more cover in central defence, as they seek to increase their options.
If Zouma was to join Spurs he would be in competition with the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier and Japhet Tanganga for a first-team place.
