Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has been tipped to join Sevilla in a swap deal but it looks like he could remain in the Premier League since not one but two sides are interested in signing him.

In a recent update, Fabrizio Romano had claimed that Zouma could be sent to Sevilla in a swap deal for Jules Kounde but the fresh updates are suggesting that English sides Crystal Palace and Spurs remain interested in signing the 26-year-old.

Telefoot journalist Julien Maynard has claimed that Kurt Zouma has not yet begun talks with Sevilla over a swap deal which has given both Palace and Tottenham Hotspur some time to stage a possible coup.

He wrote on Twitter: “Kurt Zouma – who Chelsea would like to transfer to Sevilla to lower Jules Koundé’s price – has yet to speak with either club. His salary could be a drag for Andalusians.

“Recently Crystal Palace inquired about the defender’s situation. Tottenham is a track that also remains relevant.”

Will Kurt Zouma remain in the Premier League?

Kurt Zouma remains the first choice to be put in a cash plus player deal for Jules Kounde but some rumours are suggesting that Chelsea are open to sending Emerson as well.

Emerson had a really solid Euro with Italy which could prompt Sevilla to choose him over Zouma but it remains to be seen if Palace and Spurs can convince the centre-back to join them.

Zouma is of no use to Chelsea so Thomas Tuchel will not hesitate to send him out of the club and we have a feeling he could choose to remain in the Premier League instead of joining the La Liga.

Also, Sevilla are looking to bring in Ozan Kabak as a replacement for Jules Kounde and if this deal goes through then the Spanish side could refuse a cash plus player deal and opt for a cash-only deal with Chelsea.

If Sevilla drop their interest in Kurt Zouma then Tottenham and Palace will once again be back on track to side the Frenchman.
