Newcastle fancy beating Chelsea, Arsenal for Kurt Zouma

Newcastle United are moving to trump Chelsea for St Etienne defender Kurt Zouma.

The Mirror says the Blues have been trying to close a deal for the 19-year-old centre back and are confident they will land him at the end of the season.

But the Toon hope the fact they can offer a better chance of first team football - and also have a host of French speakers at the club - could give them the upper hand.

Zouma has represented France at every level up to under-21 level and Arsenal have also been monitoring his progress in Ligue 1.
