The future of Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma is in doubt ahead of the start of the new season.

The 23-year-old centre-back has been left without a Chelsea squad number after new signing Jorginho was given the No 5 shirt.

Zouma is back with Chelsea following a season-long loan spell with Stoke City but the decision to give Jorginho his squad number has raised doubts over Zouma’s role in Maurizio Sarri’s plans.

Zouma had established himself as a key player for Chelsea before sustaining an ACL injury in the 2016-17 campaign.

Zouma still has five years left on his existing Chelsea deal after signing a new contract before leaving for Stoke last summer.
