Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Kurt Zouma, according to The Hard Tackle via Fabrizio Romano. Spurs have identified the Blues defender as an ideal alternative to Cristian Romero. The Frenchman is among three alternatives being monitored by new manager Nuno Espirito Santo in the event they miss out on the Argentine defender.

Tottenham still in negotiation for Cristian Romero but no agreement yet on €55m fee - he’s the priority. 100%. ⚪️ #THFC

Plan B: open talks to sign 3 different defenders with same amount. Tomiyasu [€18m], Milenkovic [€15m] and Zouma [€25m].

Caleta-Car, NOT even an option.— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) July 26, 2021

Zouma has blown hot and cold during his time at Stamford Bridge and has not fully convinced Thomas Tuchel so far. Chelsea are already working to bring Sevilla star Jules Kounde to the club in the coming days. They are even willing to include Zouma in a player-plus-cash deal, which could be a big blow to Tottenham’s plans.
