Kurt Zouma faces being charged by the RSPCA within days, according to reports.
The 27 year old has already been questioned by the charity’s officers.
Investigators from the body are probing the vile video which shows Zouma kicking a cat across his kitchen.

The pair of cats were seized by the charity, who are conducting health checks and assessments.
If prosecuted and convicted, Zouma faces punishments ranging from a ban on owning animals to a jail sentence.
Zouma’s brother Yoan, who plays for Dagenham and Redbridge, has been suspended by the National League club.
West Ham said Zouma had been fined the “maximum amount possible” – two weeks’ wages, reported to be in the region of £250,000 – which will be donated to animal welfare charities.
