ANTONIO CONTE reportedly has his doubts over Chelsea star Kurt Zouma.
The 22-year-old missed the first half of the season due to a serious knee injury.
And he’s made just two Premier League starts since returning from that lengthy lay-off.
Antonio Conte is on the lookout for a long-term replacement for soon-to-depart John Terry.
And The Sun have suggested the Chelsea gaffer doesn’t think Zouma is the man for the job.
Conte has apparently lost confidence in the Frenchman’s ability to reach his potential.
And those fears are said to have been sparked in the midst of his recovery from injury.
The Sun indicate Chelsea are prepared to spend big to strengthen their backline this summer.
And the Blues have earmarked Southampton ace Virgil Van Dijk as their top defensive target.
Zouma, meanwhile, is being chased by Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, according to The Sun.
