The new Chelsea boss Frank Lampard recently stated that he wants Zouma to stay at Stamford Bridge, but the French international has other plans.
Zouma joined the Blues last season on loan and enjoyed a successful campaign under Marco Silva. The Toffees are determined to sign him, and it seems Zouma is also keen to move to Merseyside.
Zouma knows that he has a better chance of playing regularly if he moves to Everton, and it will bolster his chances of getting into the France national side for the Euro 2020.
The news will come as a huge boost for Everton. There is still a lot of work left to be done to secure his signing, but it is indeed a massive boost to their transfer hopes.
