Chelsea’s defender Kurt Zouma is on loan at Everton this season, and he’s been a real success.
After breaking into their first XI a couple of months into the season, Zouma has proved to be a consistent option for Marco Silva in defence.
The 24 year old is thus a target for them as a permanent transfer, according to these reports on We Ain’t Got No History, which claim that players at the club are now trying to persuade him to stick around.
Chelsea will want him back, especially if they aren’t able to sign players this summer, but might Everton be able to tempt him to push for a move?
Given Chelsea are in what looks like an interminable decline, it’s easy to see Zouma thinking that Everton, looking better and better under Silva and with plenty of money to spend, are the better place to be right now.
That will all change if Chelsea get back into the Champions League, and if our ban is lifted. So just like the rest of us, Kurt just has to wait and see what happens in the remaining games before we can know his future.
