According to the Times, Everton are still trying to bring back Kurt Zouma this summer, making another “contact” with Chelsea, following his successful loan stint at Goodison Park last season.

Everton’s intentions have been clear and obvious for some time now. Attacking midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson and Everton manager Marco Silva have been just two of the big names at the club to openly talk about bringing back Zouma, seeing him as an important piece of the team that finished eighth in the Premier League but have aspirations for much more.

However, Chelsea’s intentions have been pretty clear as well, and they continue to make it highly unlikely that Everton will be successful in their pursuit. In fact, the report itself acknowledges that there’s been “little indication” from Chelsea that we would allow Zouma to leave the club — especially after Cahill’s exit and Rudiger’s injury. Frank Lampard made that clear recently, and Zouma himself has proclaimed he’s keen on staying at Stamford Bridge.

How about Fikayo Tomori, Everton?
