Kurt Zouma is on the verge of leaving Chelsea

A loan move for Chelsea's Kurt Zouma was also being worked on after a deal sheet was submitted to the Premier League for the defender.

NAIJ.com previously reported that Everton have reportedly move ahead of Manchester United to reach an agreement with Spanish giants Barcelona for defence ace Yerry Mina.

Zouma is Everton's seventh signing of pre-season alongside Richarlison, Lucas Digne, Joao Virginia, Bernard, Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes.

EVERTON showed Manchester United how to land their transfer targets with three big-name signings yesterday, while Jose Mourinho was left empty-handed on deadline day.

Mina ultimately made a £27 million move to fellow Premier League side Everton on deadline day, where the Toffees will hope he can produce the form he showed at the World Cup this summer.

Zouma is the second Chelsea player to be loaned to a fellow Premier League club this summer after Kenedy joined Newcastle on a season-long loan. "I know not only Nuno but some new players they have bought".

While the capture of a young up and coming center-back with bags of potential represents quite a coup for Everton, the management at Barcelona was keen to ensure a path remained open for Mina's return should he fulfill his potential.

It is a move that excites a player who was such a strong influence in his country's surprise push to the World Cup final at Russian Federation 2018, where they were finally unseated by France.
