CHELSEA are reportedly demanding at least £30million for Everton target Kurt Zouma.
Goal claims the Blues are willing to talk business with Marco Silva.
But they want Everton to cough up a tasty sum if Zouma is to return to Goodison Park this summer.
The France international, 24, spent the last season on loan at Everton.
Zouma played 36 matches at the back, becoming a hit with the fans while forging a strong partnership with Michael Keane.
Everton are desperate to sign him on a permanent deal.
But Chelsea want serious cash to convince them to part ways with the two-time Premier League winner.
Gary Cahill has left Stamford Bridge after his contract expired, freeing up a spot for a centre-back in the squad.
Chelsea have a host of youngsters at their disposal, including Ethan Ampadu and Fikayo Tomori.
However, Zouma is in prime position to compete with Andreas Christensen, David Luiz and the injured Antonio Rudiger for a place in the starting XI.
And the situation may simply boil down to whether the former St Etienne starlet fancies the challenge of reclaiming his place in Chelsea’s first team.
