Everton fans desperate for Zouma transfer in January

Marco Silva has not ruled out a January move for Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma in his recent press conference, which has seemingly got the Everton faithful dreaming of his return to Goodison Park.

The Frenchman was at the club for the entirety of last season and Toffees fans have been missing his presence in their backline ever since, whilst some Chelsea devotees have seemingly given up on him after his performance in midweek.

Last term, the defender averaged an admirable 6.78 rating in the Premier League for the Merseysiders and as fans have pointed out, he helped bring out the better player in Michael Keane. The Englishman averaged a 7.18 in the league last year alongside Zouma, which subsequently helped Keane become a regular in the England setup, appearing eight times for his country last season.

This time around, however, Everton have struggled in defence without the Chelsea man, conceding 12 goals in just seven games, with the former Burnley defender averaging just one tackle per game alongside Yerry Mina.
