The Telegraph have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur remain interested in signing Chelsea centre-back Kurt Zouma.
Spurs are reportedly keen on adding another central defender to their squad before the transfer window closes but, in order to do that, it is thought the club would first need to move on at least one of their current centre-backs.
Alasdair Gold revealed a few days ago that the player who looks the most likely to leave, Davinson Sanchez, has impressed Nuno Espirito Santo so far, further complicating the club’s operation.
The Telegraph have now claimed that Zouma remains on Tottenham’s radar and that the Lilywhites’ approach for the Frenchman could trigger two more transfers involving Chelsea and Atletico Madrid.
It is explained that Chelsea’s pursuit of Jules Kounde relies on Sevilla’s ability to sign Davinson Sanchez, who the La Liga club are thought to have identified as Kounde’s replacement.
So, it is suggested that Tottenham’s move for Zouma could trigger Sanchez’s departure to Sevilla, freeing up Chelsea to sign Kounde.

Going by our capture of Romero and our rumoured interest in the likes of Milenkovic, it is evident that Nuno and Paratici are fans of aggressive centre-backs who defend on the front foot. So, it is not a surprise that Zouma is on their radar.
However, I personally am not a fan of the 26-year-old as he has shown time and again that he has a mistake in him. In many respects, he is quite similar to Sanchez and I do not believe he will be much of an upgrade over the Colombian.
