According to Telefoot, both Nice and Lyon are closely monitoring the 22-year-old's situation at Stamford Bridge.

Nice, who finished a third in Ligue 1 last season, would be able to offer Zouma Champions League football, but Lyon would be a destination which may also attract the defender.

Lyon just missed out on Champions League football by finishing 4th last season - is another club with their watchful eye on the two-time-capped French international.

The centre-back, who has been capped twice at international level, is keen to play regularly next term in order to boost his chances of playing at next summer's World Cup
