There is no chance of Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma joining Tottenham this summer, says Spurs legend Graham Roberts.
Zouma is currently being linked with a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with Telefoot journalist Julien Maynard claiming that the north London club are interested in signing the French centre-half.
Tottenham do look to be in the market for a new central defender. At the start of the month, The Athletic reported that new director of football Fabio Paratici is aiming to strengthen that area of the pitch.
Would you have Zouma at Tottenham?
Given the history between the two clubs, though, for Roberts, a move for Zouma is highly unlikely.
“It will never happen, because [Daniel] Levy and [Roman] Abramovich don’t deal with each other,” the former Tottenham defender said when asked by TT if Zouma would be a good signing.
“They just don’t deal with each other. They don’t like each other and they don’t deal with each other, so that won’t happen at all.”
If not for the bad blood between the two sides, Zouma certainly could have been a solid option for Tottenham.
Last season, the 26-year-old won 3.6 aerial duels per league game, the most in Chelsea’s squad (via WhoScored), so could have brought a real aerial presence to Nuno Espirito Santo’s team.
