Chelsea supporters were sent into meltdown as Kurt Zouma uploaded a selfie with Antonio Conte’s target Faouzi Ghoulam this week.

The Premier League champions have been monitoring Ghoulam’s situation at Napoli for some time and were heavily linked with the 26-year-old left-back ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

It’s understood Liverpool and Manchester City are also keen on Ghoulam, but he was seen hanging out with Chelsea loanee Zouma during the international break.

The pair were once team-mates at Saint-Etienne and a number of Chelsea fans begged Zouma to bring the Algerian to Stamford Bridge on the Instagram post.

Zouma, currently on loan at Stoke City, admitted earlier this year that he would love Ghoulam to join him at Chelsea.

‘Of all the players I have known in Sainté, the one I would like to come to Chelsea to play with me is Faouzi Ghoulam,’ the defender told Eurosport back in March.

‘He’s part of the family.’

Liverpool have reportedly made an approach for Ghoulam but Napoli are determined to keep hold of the highly-rated full-back.

Ghoulam is out of contract at Napoli next summer and a host of Premier League clubs are expected to fight for the defender’s signature.
