As usual, Chelsea will loan out young players who need game time to improve, to other clubs where they might get playing opportunities.
For Kurt Zouma, the 22-year-old might spend the next season on loan with Marseille.
French paper l’Equipe claim Chelsea are ready to let the central defender leave and get first-team experience next year.
Zouma has failed to break into Antonio Conte’s backline since his return from a long-term injury and doesn’t look the star he was supposed to be in the few games he has played this season.
The long injury layoff he suffered has deteriorated his growth as a defender, as Zouma was already a buzzing force in the Chelsea defence before suffering that injury.
Marseille chief Andoni Zubizarreta has reportedly sounded out Conte over a possible move for Zouma this summer, while Valencia are also said to be interested in him.
