Chelsea centre back Kurt Zouma is being rigorously chased by Everton. However, their boss Marco Silva has opted to keep his focus on his own team rather than talk about a player from a different club.
Responding the online social media campaign started by the Everton fans, names #freeZouma, Silva told the ECHO : “No I don’t look [on social media]!
“What is the priority is the central defender, when cannot go through a tough season with Mason [Holgate], Michael [Keane] and [Yerry] Mina – even if the boy [Lewis] Gibson is working with us, he’s not ready yet for this level.
“I don’t like to talk about Zouma, because he’s not our player. I don’t need to repeat anything about him.
“Our fans’ reaction shows everything about what we as a club and me as a manager think about him.
“But it’s not fair for me [to comment] first because I have to respect the defenders we have here even if they know we want one more, and Zouma is a Chelsea player. It’s not the moment to talk about him.
“If it’s not Zouma, it has to be another one with quality to improve our squad and to give competition.”
