Everton could struggle to sign Kurt Zouma on a permanent basis if Chelsea see their transfer ban from FIFA upheld on appeal.
The French international has spent two seasons away from Stamford Bridge on loan, previously at relegated Stoke City, and more successfully with Everton, but with Chelsea handed a two window transfer ban, the London club could keep him for their own first team.
Zouma was a mainstay of the Everton defence last season, and Marco Silva made no secret of wanting to keep him at Goodison Park if a deal could be done.
However, it is being reported by a newspaper we will not share links to that Chelsea will want to keep hold of him to shore up their own defence.
Chelsea finished in the top four of the Premier League and made it to the final of the Europa League, and if he is given assurances about a starting place, Zouma could be tempted not to kick up a fuss.
