Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is now manager of Italian club AS Roma.

According to Julien Maynard, journalist for French publication Telefoot, Mourinho wants to strengthen his Roma defence by signing Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma this summer.

Mourinho is hoping Roma can agree loan deal for Zouma.

Zouma started last season as a key player for the Blues under former boss Frank Lampard but dropped down the pecking order after Thomas Tuchel replaced Lampard as Chelsea boss.

Zouma started 15 of Chelsea’s first 17 Premier League matches under Lampard in the early stages of the campaign but started just 7 league games under Tuchel.

The report claims Zouma is likely to leave Chelsea this summer as the 26 year old defender wants a fresh start.

Meanwhile, Tuchel admitted last season that it was an unfair decision to drop Zouma from the starting XI.

“Since day one we chose [Rudiger] in the first match, it was an unfair decision against Kurt, but he is German and I had a clear picture of what he can do because I followed him a bit more than Kurt Zouma,” Tuchel explained.
