Chelsea legend looking to tempt key Blues star abroad with lucrative offer

Gianfranco Zola is looking to bring John Terry to Middle East next summer, the Express claims.

The Chelsea captain has been in-and-out of the starting line-up this season, with Kurt Zouma and Gary Cahill all vying for the two central roles.

Terry played every single minute of last season’s league winning campaign, but has started on the bench twice so far this year.

Interestingly he was left out of the starting line-up for the crucial match with rivals Arsenal, which could show a reduction in his importance to the first-team.

Former Chelsea forward Gianfranco Zola is now said to be lining up a lucrative deal to bring him to Al Arabi, where he is managing.

Terry is out of contract at the end of the season, and looks unlikely to be offered a further one-year extension.

The Qatari club signed former Premier League midfielder Ashkan Dejagah just over a year ago, who played for fellow West-London side Fulham, and are now targeting a move for the England international.
