Lots of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to discuss what to do next in their pursuit of Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma, after Frank Lampard delivered an update on the centre-back.
The newly appointed Blues boss made no attempt to hide his intentions regarding Zouma, saying: “I want him here, simple as that.”
Check out some amazing tekkers in the video below…
The France international shone for the Toffees on loan last season, striking up an excellent partnership with Michael Keane which some supporters below have touched upon.
The news that Chelsea would like to keep Zouma will come as a blow to the Merseysiders, who are also facing the possibility of losing their Players’ Player of the Season, Idrissa Gueye, to Paris Saint-Germain.
Marco Silva has admitted that he would like the 24-year-old to follow Andre Gomes in signing permanently, but also conceded the fact that the Toffees cannot wait until the last few days of the window to land the former St Etienne man.
Let’s see what the Everton supporters on Twitter have been saying about the Zouma pursuit…
I’m much more confident in replacing Gana in midfield than I am replicating the partnership Keane had with Zouma. It was the biggest reason for our strong form to end the season, IMO.

Give holgate a chance!

Would love to get zouma, but clear lampard wants him and he’ll probably stay. Should focus time now looking at quality alternatives so we’re not scrambling come deadline day

If there’s any chance, keep pursuing. But we are gonna need Zouma to help us out!

Zouma brought the best out of Keane so we have to try everything to get him

Hopefully Zouma signs, I think it’s a tactic from Lampard to increase the valuation.
Holgate isn’t the answer.

I hate to say but Chelsea would be idiots to let him go, and this season is Zoumas best chance since signing for Chelsea to make a name for himself in their team. I’d love him to stay but let’s face it. It ain’t happening
