Kurt Zouma 'tells' friends he wants Everton move this summer

Matt Debono

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma enjoyed a successful loan spell with Everton last season, and now the Toffees are looking to secure him on a permanent basis this summer.

Zouma, 24, made 32 Premier League appearances for Marco Silva's side last campaign.

Everton have already secured loanee Andre Gomes from Barcelona and are now looking to do the same with Kurt Zouma.

The Daily Star claim that the French defender has told friends he wants to make the move up north permanent.

Chelsea will be less willing to part ways with the centre-back, who has found it difficult to cement himself in the Blues side since his horror injury against Manchester United back in 2016.
