Everton increasingly confident on Kurt Zouma loan deal after Mina deal stalls
Everton have turned to Kurt Zouma in a bid to solve their defensive issues and they are increasingly confident of landing the centre back on loan, according to reports.

Marco Silva's side face heading into the new season with just two fit centre backs, Phil Jagielka and Michael Keane, with Mason Holgate struggling with injuries and Ashley Williams loaned to Stoke.

Everton had agreed a £28.5million fee for Barcelona's Yerry Mina and were chasing a deal for Manchester United's Marcos Rojo but talks have since stalled.

And The Mirror report that Everton are now turning to Chelsea's Zouma as a solution to their problems at the back heading into the new campaign.

Everton are seeking a loan deal for the 23-year-old, who spent last season fighting an unsuccessful battle against relegation with Stoke.

The Toffees have added winger Richarlison, full-back Lucas Digne and attacking midfielder Bernard, subject to a work permit, so far this summer.
