Everton are interested in signing Fikayo Tomori on loan from Chelsea.
The Merseyside club have been keen to sign Kurt Zouma, who was on loan with them from Chelsea last season.
Blues boss Frank Lampard wants Zouma to stay at Stamford Bridge but could allow England Under-21 centre-back Tomori to move to Goodison Park on loan in order to pick up Premier League experience.
Tomori, 21, impressed in the Championship last season while on loan at Derby, where he played under Lampard. He was previously on loan at Brighton and Hull.
