Everton and Tottenham Hotspur want Chelsea defender?

Kurt Zouma news

Zouma to leave Chelsea this summer

Everton and Tottenham Hotspur have expressed an interest in signing Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma this summer.

The Frenchman struggled for regular playing time last season, and Telefoot claims that he is expected to leave the Blues.

The Toffees have expressed an interest in re-signing the centre-back, having previously loaned him during the 2018/19 season.

However, they are set to face competition from Tottenham Hotspur, who are eyeing a new centre-back with Premier League experience.

Spurs were eager to sign Antonio Rudiger last summer when Jose Mourinho was the head coach, but a deal failed to materialise.

Mourinho is currently the manager of Roma. It is reported that the Portuguese is also interested in a reunion with Zouma.

Zouma was brought to the west London giants when Mourinho was the manager. Roma are exploring a loan deal with a buy option.

The Frenchman has two years left on his Blues contract. He is reportedly valued at around £25 million by the hierarchy.
