Promising France defender Kurt Zouma, who is currently starring at the Under-20 World Cup in Turkey, is due to meet with Saint-Etienne officials soon to decide his future, according to Le 10 Sport.
Zouma has turned the heads of a number of teams across Europe, with his agent confirming the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool are interested in his client. And although it was later revealed that Liverpool have dropped out of the running, attention hasalso come from Borussia Dortmund, Newcastle and Chelsea.
Zouma has indicated that he would rather remain with Saint-Etienne this summer, however a big money bid may take the decision out of his hands.
And now a meeting is due to be held with the player and Les Verts soon.
The 18-year-old centre-back, who has long been tipped for big things, made 18 appearances in Ligue 1 last season.
Zouma is a product of Saint-Etienne’s youth system and made his senior debut for the club in 2011.
The Lyon-born stopper has appeared for France at Under-16, Under-17, Under-19 and Under-20 level.
