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.”
Tottenham est une piste qui reste aussi d’actualité.

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.
