With Kurt Zouma’s loan spell coming to a close at Stoke City, the Chelsea defender has been rumored to be on the hunt for a move away from Stamford Bridge.
This years transfer window has seen Leeds United linked with an eclectic mix of players. From Fernando Torres to Claudio Bravo, the rumors are coming thick and fast for potential targets – although some are definitely more believable than others.
Recently, fans have taken to Twitter to discuss a potential move for Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma to move to Elland Road.
Although Leeds United have managed to agree deals to take Jamal Blackman and Lewis Baker from Cheslea to Elland Road on loan this season, a move for Zouma really does seem to stretch the imagination, but several fans seem to think it’s a possible move.
The rumours nonetheless seem like blind optimism from a section of Leeds United’s support and several fans have been quick to quash the poor credibility of the rumours, however, it has certainly got some fans excited on Twitter, here are some of the reactions.
first fernando Torres then kurt zouma,
Who will leeds be linked with next?

Don’t expect anything to come of the Kurt Zouma “rumours” if you can call them that. Would be an immense signing, but the costs are way too high.
£7.2 million Stoke had to pay last season, without counting for wages.

Just seen someone say we are signing Kurt Zouma and I’m still laughing and probably will be for the next day or so #LUFC

Kurt Zouma name surfaced earlier with regard to #LUFC move but I find it difficult to square off this deal! He cost Stoke £7.2m in loan fee only last ssn and carries a value of £13m plus according to Transfermarkt. That is too rich for most C/ship clubs.

Have I really just read a Zouma rumour? Has a nice ring to it, but surely not?! #lufc
