Loads of Everton fans have been giving their verdict on a promising transfer rumour, as reports claim the Toffees want to sign Kurt Zouma on a permanent basis.

According to The Liverpool Echo, Everton will test Chelsea’s resolve with a permanent move for Zouma this summer.

The French international joined the Toffees on loan last summer, and has probably been the club’s most reliable centre back this season, although that isn’t really saying much.

The 24 year-old is winning an average of 3.3 aerial duels per game, as well as making 1.4 interceptions, 3.7 clearances and completing 84 per cent of his passes.

According to the report, Marco Silva wanted to sign the towering defender permanently last summer, but Chelsea were not willing to sell. The gaffer still has Zouma on his wish-list though.

Zouma is in contract with Chelsea until 2023 so he will not come cheap, but judging from the Twitter reactions below fans will hope the club pulls the trigger anyway…
