Everton are said to have entered negotiations with Chelsea over Kurt Zouma.

Chelsea fans do not want Kurt Zouma sold to Everton, amid rumours that Marco Silva’s side are stepping up their chase for the centre-back.

The Telegraph suggest that Everton want to sign Zouma from Chelsea, after he enjoyed a brilliant spell on loan at Goodison Park last term.

 

Everton and Chelsea are now in negotiations over the Frenchman, although it is unclear whether the London side would be open to a sale.

And Chelsea fans are certainly hoping that their side do not listen to any offers that Everton may make for Zouma.

Zouma is known to be one of Everton’s top targets, as he has already proven himself at Goodison Park.

The 24-year-old formed a solid partnership with Michael Keane in the heart of Everton’s defence last term, and would surely play a key role if he was to return to the Merseyside club.

Chelsea are currently operating under a transfer embargo though, which complicates things.

If Chelsea do sell Zouma to Everton they won’t be able to buy a replacement this summer, and that could put them off doing a deal.
