Saint-Etienne starlet Kurt Zouma's list of suitors has grown once again after Atletico Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco joined Liverpool and Manchester City among the pack of clubs chasing his signature.
talkSPORT told you last Friday that Inter Milan, who have recently been sold to Indonesian billionaire Erick Thohir, are considering making a move for him in January.
But the San Siro giants will face stiff competition from across the continent, with no less than eight clubs keen on the highly regarded 18-year-old.
Zouma is considered one of the future stars of French football and he's already secured silverware on the international stage having helped France claim the Under-20 World Cup in Turkey earlier this year.
A host of Premier League clubs - most notably Liverpool and City - have tracked him, while Juventus are also monitoring his development.
He is under contract until 2017, but it is expected that several clubs will test Saint-Etienne's resolve in the New Year.
