Everton and Manchester United are interested in signing Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma.

The 23-year-old French center-back is no longer a key member of Chelsea’s first team and a loan move away from Stamford Bridge will afford him more playing time.

According to L’Equipe, Everton and Manchester United have begun talks to sign Kurt Zouma.

The report suggests that Man United are interested in a permanent deal while Everton want to take Zouma on loan.

Both clubs are in need of reinforcements in defence and have been linked with the likes of Yerry Mina, Boateng, and Maguire. Zouma has emerged as a possible target for both clubs.

Zouma was regarded as a top class talent before he was ruled out for several months by a knee injury. It’s left to see if the player can regain his form and confidence.

Zouma spent last season on loan to Stoke City but he couldn’t help them to avoid the drop to the Championship.

Chelsea apparently do not want the player to join a direct rival this summer, and Everton might be the best option for Kurt Zouma. Zouma is likely to play under Marco Silva next season.
