HYS: Should Everton sign Zouma on a permanent deal?

Everton had a successful transfer window, but last summer proved that bringing in a hoard of new players does not always bring joy to the pitch.

Manager Marco Silva boosted the wide areas and midfield, as well as the defence.

Kurt Zouma was one of the centre-backs that he recruited, but only on a season-long loan from Chelsea.

The Frenchman, who is valued at £13.5m by Transfermarkt, was thought of as a promising star for the future at Stamford Bridge.

However, after suffering cruciate ligament damage in 2016, the centre-back struggled to get back into the first XI.

Since then, Zouma has had loan spells at Stoke City and now Everton, where he has been included in all three Premier League matchday squads, and made his debut in a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth.

The Merseyside outfit have a number of defenders to choose from, including Phil Jagielka, Michael Keane, Mason Holgate and Yerry Mina.

However, Jagielka is in the latter stages of his career, which is likely to open up a spot in the future.

With that in mind, should Everton try to make Zouma’s move permanent at the end of the season?
