Tottenham are on the hunt for a new centre back this summer transfer window, and they could turn to a Chelsea defender to solve that hunt.
The priority for them is Christian Romero, but there has yet to be any agreements there, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
If they cannot land him, then they will turn to a number of other ‘Plan B’ options, says Romano, one of which would be Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma, who is valued at ‘€25m’ allegedly.
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.

Zouma has been touted as one of the centre backs who could be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer due to dropping down the pecking order under Thomas Tuchel.
However, this is far from set in stone and you’d have to feel that if Chelsea were to let Zouma leave this window, they would need to have a replacement for him, or perhaps use a returning loan player in his place such as Ethan Ampadu or Malang Sarr, just for example.
