Chelsea and Everton in talks over possible Zouma deal

Chelsea and Everton in talks over possible Zouma deal Chelsea and Everton have reportedly begun negotiations regarding the possible transfer of Kurt Zouma. According to claims from The Telegraph, the 24-year-old could be on the move again this summer as the Toffees pursue a permanent deal. Zouma spent the duration of last season on loan at Goodison Park and was impressive, earning himself a regular starting berth in Marco Silva’s line-up. Such was the impression that the France international made during his temporary stay on Merseyside, Everton are now chasing a deal, and have entered talks with Chelsea.

Everton have reportedly identified defender Kurt Zouma as a priority target ahead of the summer . The 24-year-old has been with the Toffees this Everton should certainly be looking to splash out on a defender they know can do a job for them and he still has so much more potential to get even better.

Everton have reportedly made Chelsea’s Kurt Zouma their top transfer target this summer – but should the Toffees consider looking elsewhere?

According to BBC Sport, cited by HITC, Marco Silva is desperate to land Zouma this summer after securing the permanent services of fellow loan star Andre Gomes from Barcelona.

The report claims that the Toffees may have to be at least £30m for the Frenchman following an impressive campaign at Goodison Park.

Silva is in desperate need for defensive reinforcements this summer, and a move for Zouma appears to be a smart one considering the impact he had last season.

However, the Toffees have also been linked with big money moves for Real Sociedad’s Diego Llorente and Getafe’s Dakonam Djene this summer.

The La Liga duo are highly thought of in Spain, but with no Premier League experience, moves for the pair would be risky.

If Everton can strike a deal for Zouma in the region of £30m, it could turn out to be a bargain price for the 24-year-old, who may well be a mainstay in the Toffees defence for years to come.

Gomes wants Zouma return, what does that mean for Everton?.
Andre Gomes has declared that he would like to see Kurt Zouma return to Everton on a permanent basis this summer, so what does this mean for Everton? Gomes completely his returned to Goodison Park on a permanent basis late last month, with the Portugal international having spent last season on Merseyside on a loan arrangement from Barcelona. The midfielder excelled for the Toffees and impressed in his season-long stay, prompting the club to prioritise a permanent solution for the 25-year old to return this summer.
