Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma is having a good season on loan with Everton, and his recent form has earned him a recall to the France national team.
The 24-year-old signed a six-year contract with Chelsea in 2017 before heading out on loan to Stoke City. Zouma impressed on loan with Stoke but couldn’t save them from going down.
After his good form for Stoke, Zouma joined Everton on a season-long loan deal last year and has impressed for the Toffees. Everton boss Marco Silva is keen on keeping Zouma at the end of the season, but Zouma hasn’t made up his mind about his future.
Zouma has revealed that he’s yet to hear from Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri and hasn’t discussed with the manager about his future.
When asked about his future, Zouma said: “I don’t know yet. We have five more games to play and then we will see.
“I am very happy [here]. My aim was to come and play and improve myself and I think I have done that here. I hope we will finish the season very high.
“The manager brought some very good players in last summer and now everyone understands each other.
“We are confident, are playing forward more and are playing better and we believe but the season hasn’t finished yet so we have to go again next week and get a win.
“We are more confident. We hold the ball a bit better, we are more compact as a team as we defend together and attack together. We have the crowd behind, which helps us a lot, so we just need to keep on going like this.”
Chelsea currently have three center-backs in David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, with Luiz and Rudiger currently Sarri’s first choice.
