On Loan Chelsea Defender Zouma Consider Making Everton Move Permanent: Good Move For Both?

In a recent interview with the Liverpool Echo, Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma, who is currently enjoying a season-long loan spell at Everton, revealed that he needs to make up his mind about making his move to Goodison Park permanent next summer. Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, when asked about his long-term future, Zouma said, “At the minute I’m just enjoying myself here, playing week in week out and improving myself.

“I’m very happy and I will have time to think about it.”

The fact that the French centre-back is enjoying his loan spell at Merseyside should help the Toffees convince the player to commit his long-term future to the club. However, it won’t be easy to negotiate a deal with the Pensioners, especially after Maurizio Sarri’s team were handed a two transfer window ban by FIFA. Hence, the Chelsea boss needs to figure out and determine which loanees he wants to keep at Stamford Bridge next season.

The Recent Emergence Of Kurt Zouma

Zouma has enjoyed a solid campaign with Everton after putting in a few commanding displays for them at the back during this season. He has featured in 31 league matches for the Toffees this term, scoring two goals while creating two assists in all competitions. More importantly, the Lyon born defensive ace has made an average of 0.9 tackles, 1.4 interceptions and 3.9 clearances per game for the Merseyside outfit so far (Stats taken from Whoscored).

What Does The French Defender Add To Silva’s Team?

The former Stoke City defender has decent pace in his locker and is physically dominant at both ends of the pitch. Zouma has built a reputation of making important clearances for his team and has successfully transformed himself into an integral member of Marco Silva’s backline at Goodison Park.

Good Move For Both Parties?

Zouma’s recent revelation indicates that he will consider an offer from Everton if Silva can convince Chelsea to part ways with their prized asset. The French centre-back can benefit from making a permanent switch to the blue half of Merseyside as he will be guaranteed regular game time under Silva’s tutelage. 

The Toffees will also need Zouma if they are to challenge the ‘Top 6’ of the Premier League in the coming years. Hence, it could be a move that is mutually beneficially for both the player and the club ahead of the new season.
