Chelsea fans have been waxing lyrical over French defender Kurt Zouma and his progression to being a first-teamer.

Following a post to Chelsea’s official Twitter account wishing the Frenchman a happy 25th birthday, Blues fans flooded the comments section with well-wishes and excitement over Zouma’s Chelsea future.

The 25-year-old has featured for Chelsea on nine occasions in the Premier League this season and fans are excited over just how good Zouma can become.

The Frenchman has been with the Blues for five years, having joined the club in 2014 in a £13.1 million switch from Saint Etienne (per Transfermarkt).

Having had loan spells with Stoke City and Everton in the previous two seasons, Zouma has tied down a first-team spot with a number of other players with big potential (per The Sun) – much to the delight of the Blues supporters.

What do we think?

The 25-year-old is improving all the time for Chelsea and looks more assured with every passing performance (per Chelsea).

Picking up a 6/10 (as per The Express) in his last outing, the 4-2 away victory at Turf Moor, the Frenchman has amassed a string of impressive performances and should he continue in that ilk he could be be a prominent feature in Frank Lampard’s backline for a long time to come.
