Saint-Etienne defender Kurt Zouma says he is aware of interest from Chelsea.

The 18-year old, who is currently away on duty with the France U20 side at the World Cup in Turkey, says he knows that the Blues are watching but admits he is focused on the task at hand.

"If you hear of interest from Chelsea and a great manager such as Jose Mourinho, you take notice," Zouma told reporters.

"It makes you happy, and it means you are on the right way to the top.

"I am relaxed about all the fuss about me being linked with big clubs, at the moment my focus is on the Under 20 World Cup. We have to try to win that with our generation of good young players."
