Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero will make a move for Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma but will Jose Mourinho allow the 20-year-old to leave Stamford Bridge?
The short answer is no.
Last season, the Portuguese admitted that the youngster featured more than he expected and that he is developing in a way that he could take over from captain John Terry as the team's leader in defence.
"Zouma is now 20 years old and one day he will be 23, 24 and a player with great maturity, probably even with leadership to replace John [Terry]," Mourinho told the club's official website two months ago.
"This season he is playing more than I expected, more than he expected and more than everyone expected so he is getting experience levels which are very important."
Mourinho is an admirer of the Frenchman and wants him to continue his development at Chelsea. John Terry will be 35 next season and Zouma is expected to feature even more than he did this season.
On a possible move for the player, the Sampdoria president said: "I spoke to Jurgen Klopp, Roberto Di Matteo, Unai Emery and Maurizio Sarri.
"They explained that they wanted to play great football, but I have a physical side and want the people Zenga talked to me about.
"I chose [coach Walter] Zenga because he wanted to come back to Italy and already knows the Sampdoria environment.
"I already signed [Niklas] Moisander from Ajax and I am trying to get [Kurt] Zouma, because they are very physical players."
