Lots of Everton fans have been hailing a transfer link to Chelsea ace Kurt Zouma as Duncan Castles revealed on The Transfer Window podcast that he could return to Goodison Park in the summer window.
Indeed, the £25.2 million-valued man played in 36 games in all competitions in the 2018/19 season for the Toffees on loan from Stamford Bridge, scoring two goals and making a further two assists, according to Transfermarkt.
However, it looks as if Carlo Ancelotti’s team may swoop in again for the French international as a possible alternative to transfer target Gabriel, who may well be going to Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal instead.
Nevertheless, Zouma could be an upgrade on the current central defenders at the Blues, as he averaged more interceptions, passes and long balls than Mason Holgate, Michael Keane and Yerry Mina in the Premier League in the last campaign, as per Whoscored.
Does Zouma get into the Everton starting eleven currently?
These EFC supporters hailed the news on Twitter:
Personally, I thought he was excellent when we had him. I’d have him back like a shot, possibly ditch Mina and if need be, try Holgate in midfield. Just a thought…
