Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes Kurt Zouma will be the long term replacement for the outgoing David Luiz, according to The Independent.
Luiz is set to join Ligue 1 moneybags Paris Saint-Germain in the coming days, and it's Zouma who looks set to replace him.
Zouma, who only signed for the Blues in January for £12.5 million from St Etienne, is just 19-years-old and is set to be handed a key role in Mourinho's side next season.
The French teenager spent the remainder of the 2013/14 campaign on loan away from Stamford Bridge and will be looking to further progress next season.
Chelsea fans will be excited to see the youngster in action in the next campaign, as the starlet looks to challenge the likes of John Terry and Gary Cahill for a place in the first team.
With a number of talented youngsters on board at Stamford Bridge, the future looks bright for Mourinho and Co.
