Chelsea FC will not make a decision about Kurt Zouma’s future until they have a new manager in place, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Star is reporting that the 24-year-old’s future rests in the hands of the club’s new manager after his two-season loan spell at Everton.

According to the same story, Chelsea FC would be willing to sell the Frenchman at the right price, but they will not make any moves until they have appointed their new boss.

The article says that Everton are keen to bring in Zouma on a permanent deal after his successful loan spell at the Goodison Park outfit.

However, Chelsea FC do not appear to be in any rush to make a decision about Zouma’s future as things stand.

The Blues are currently on the lookout for a new manager after having parted company with Maurizio Sarri earlier this month.

The Italian left Chelsea FC to take over at Juventus after just one season in charge.

Sarri led Chelsea FC to a respectable third-placed finish in the Premier League table and also guided them to glory in the Europa League.

Frank Lampard is believed to be the leading candidate to take over from Sarri this summer.
