Flocking to Twitter, many Tottenham Hotspur fans have erupted in response to a transfer claim involving Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma.
Spurs have set their sights on a major summer revamp of their defence, with the centre-half position a priority. Reliable correspondent Alasdair Gold has tipped Tottenham to target two new signings at centre-back and there has been no shortage of links to new defenders.
Among the names currently being mentioned, Chelsea colossus Zouma has now emerged as a target, with Telefoot journalist Julien Maynard now bringing the latest.
He claimed that the 26-year-old is now expected to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, with both Spurs and Everton holding an interest in him.
Flocking to this news, many Tottenham fans have erupted on social media with their takes, with one Lilywhites fan branding Zouma a potentially ‘great signing’.
Starting 22 matches for Chelsea in the Premier League last season, he bagged an impressive five-goal haul for a defender whilst averaging a higher pass accuracy (90.9%) than anyone in the Tottenham squad.
Tottenham fans erupt over Zouma claim…
“Yes yes yes yes yes”
“I’d take him. He’s one of the best defenders in the air I’ve seen in the Prem.”
“This is a dub”
“He’s a tank”
