Report provides update on Everton's hopes of landing Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma

Kurt Zouma of Stoke City in action during the Premier League match between Everton and Stoke City at Goodison Park Transfer: Manchester United in talks to sign Chelsea defender

Manchester United are making a move today for Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma. Manchester United have thus, opened negotiations with their rivals over a possible move for the 23-year-old, although the Blues are unwilling to sell to a direct rival.

Now 24, Tyias Browning is approaching the age where he would have been hoping to get regular first-team experience at Everton but the signing of Mina could push him out of the picture entirely, as he has just seven Premier League appearances in six years. But heading into the 2018/19 campaign, Marco Silva could partner two of the most promising young centre-backs around at Goodison Park.

His arrival at the club has been followed by several high-calibre players including Bernard, Lucas Digne, Andre Gomes, Yerry Mina and Richarlison.

Reports also claim that Silva allowed Ashley Williams to move to relegated Stoke - effectively replacing Zouma - on loan and let Ramiro Funes Mori join Spain's Villarreal, leaving him desperate to bring in new faces.

Public Health officials say West Nile Virus is mainly transmitted to people through the bite of an infected mosquito. August and September are traditionally the peak times for virus transmission of the mosquitoborne virus.

While Everton haven't confirmed whether they were able to wrap up the deal in time or not, Alan Myers explained for Sky Sports that while it may take till the morning to be announced, the deal is expected to go through.

For that to happen, however, Zouma must make himself part of Silva's new-look defence and then help the Toffees become a formidable defensive unit.
