Everton are looking to bring back centre-back Kurt Zouma from Chelsea this summer, according to the latest reports.

Everton's Kurt Zouma

If Chelsea are prepared to sell Kurt Zouma then paying £30 million for him looks to be a no-brainer for Everton.

BBC Sport suggest that Everton have made Zouma their top target, as they enter discussions with Chelsea over the Frenchman.

Initially it was feared that Everton would struggle to buy Zouma permanently, but the latest reports suggest that he could be available for £30 million.

 

That is a big price for Everton to pay, but the transfer still shouldn’t require too much thought.

Zouma is as close to a guaranteed hit that Everton could buy this summer.

The powerful centre-back has already proven his worth at Goodison Park, after an outstanding season on loan there last term.

Zouma and Michael Keane’s partnership at the back for Everton was very solid and the thought of the pair being reunited again next campaign is an exciting prospect.

Everton should now push through with the transfer and if Chelsea are potentially willing to sell for £30 million, then Marco Silva should be delighted with that news.
