Cardiff City are making a shock move for St Etienne defender Kurt Zouma.

After clinching a club record deal for FC Copenhagen striker Andreas Cornelius, Cardiff are now in talks with St Etienne for Zouma.

The France U20 star is a top target for Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, but he could be trumped by Premier League new-boys Cardiff.

RMC say the Bluebirds have offered €10 million for the defender.
