Kurt Zouma is undergoing a medical at Everton ahead of a potential loan move from Chelsea, according to the Telegraph’s Chris Bascombe.

The Toffees want to add further quality to their ranks following a hectic finale to the summer transfer window, with Zouma identified as a loan target.

The 5pm deadline for buying English clubs has already passed, but the Toffees have apparently submitted an extension request to the Premier League as they look to thrash out a deal for the Frenchman.

Zouma spent last season on loan at Stoke City but failed to impress, as the Potters were consigned to relegation down to the Championship.

The deal would cap what has been a busy day for Everton, with a trio of players already having been secured by the club.

Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina are set to line up for the Toffees, with Bernard also having joined on a free transfer following his release from Shakhtar Donetsk.
