Kurt Zouma has spent the 2017/18 campaign on loan with Stoke City, and has so far played 33 games for the Potters.

Although, Stoke have struggled this season, Zouma has given a good account of himself at the club and Peter Crouch has gone on to tip the defender to be great for both Chelsea and France.

He told the Daily Mail: “Helping Stoke is his priority, as it has been since he first walked through the door.

“It would be easy for loan players to take a back seat in tough situations but Kurt has been a good lad around the place.

“He has also been good on the pitch and I’m convinced he will go on to be Chelsea and France’s first choice central defender.

“Everything you would want from a defender, he has got. Kurt is quick, strong, good on the ball and his leap is absolutely ridiculous.

“We do tests in the gym to measure your spring and he can get so high his head touches the ceiling.

“Really, he can be anything he wants to be.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
