Saint-Etienne president Roland Romeyer has revealed that he's unsure as to whether prize asset Kurt Zouma will stay at the club for the long term, reports talkSPORT.

Zouma, who has been a long term target of Chelsea, has been in fine form for the French outfit this season and has also been linked with a move to Premier League giants Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool. 

It has also been reported that former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is interested in the player's services. 

And despite Saint-Etienne desperate to keep the 19-year-old at the club, their president has admitted that anything can happen in football.

He told TMW: "We do not expect him (Zouma) to leave. To date we have not had formal offers, although in football it is hard to know what can happen."

The likes of Chelsea and Manchester United have been heavily linked with moves for defenders in recent time with the likes of John Terry, Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic coming to the twilight years of their careers. 

Chelsea defender David Luiz has also been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge and with Manchester United tipped to buy in January, the two clubs could go head-to-head for the signing of Zouma.
