Everton keen on permanent deal for Kurt Zouma, But Deal Rests On Chelsea’s Transfer ban


  • French centre-back, Kurt Zouma has been in great form under Marco Silva.
  • Everton wants to make Zouma’s loan stay permanent.
  • Zouma could return to Chelsea next summer as the Blues are faced with a two-window transfer ban.

Kurt Zouma has been in top form for Marco Silva’s side this season; he has made 29 Premier League appearances and has helped Everton to the eighth position in the Premier League table.

However, it is quite unclear if Zouma has a future at Stamford Bridge next season. Currently, the Blues are under a two-window transfer ban by FIFA; meaning that they be unable to purchase new players.

Chelsea are yet to know if their latest appeal will be successful after an initial appeal was rejected by the authorities. English international, Gary Cahill would leave Chelsea when his contract expires at the end of the season while David Luiz is yet to have a contract extension.
If the Blues are unable to sign new players in the next transfer window, Kurt Zouma may find himself in Maurizio Sarri’s plans.
