Everton set to land Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma before transfer deadline window

Everton set to land Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma before transfer deadline window”

Everton were linked with a deadline day loan swoop for Chelsea's Premier League youngster Kurt Zouma, but the transfer window has now closed.

Zouma spent past year on loan at Stoke, who were relegated after finishing 19th, but his path to the first team at Chelsea looks hard due to the presence of Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz, Andreas Christensen and Gary Cahill. And, Manchester United and Everton are interested.

Everton want to add further quality to their ranks following a hectic finale to the summer transfer window, with Zouma identified as a loan target.

The United boss is hoping to sign at least one more top class player today with a centre-back the priority and the Manchester giants have reportedly failed to agree terms for the likes of Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld, Jerome Boateng and Yerry Mina in recent weeks.

Zouma was signed by Mourinho in 2014 when he was the manager of the London based outfit.

The Toffees significantly bolstered their squad on transfer deadline day with the arrivals of Bernard, Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina, but their business is not yet done, with a temporary move for Zouma in the pipeline.

The central defender is undergoing a medical at Everton ahead of a potential loan move from Chelsea, according to the Telegraph's Chris Bascombe.

Everton manager Marco Silva confirms that a loan deal to bring Kurt Zouma to the club from Everton is "almost done".
