Will Zouma leave Chelsea?
Kurt Zouma had a fairly mixed 2020/21 campaign. It started with the Frenchman, a key figure in Frank Lampard.
However, when Thomas Tuchel took the reins in late January, Zouma began to see his playing time reduced.
The Frenchman did not appear in Tuchel’s first five league games as Chelsea manager, and would complete 90 minutes only seven times at the PL under his new boss.
Following his limited action under Tuchel, reports began to emerge in early July suggesting that Zouma was expected to leave Chelsea this summer:

In England, Wolverhampton was positioned but the player declined.
Everton and Tottenham are interested, as are Roma. José Mourinho would like to get the loan (with OA) of the defender. #Market

Why West Ham is unlikely to sign Zouma
Later in the month, we would see West Ham United linked with the Sky Sports News cap:
West Ham is willing to pay around £ 20 million for Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma ⚒️

Now, however, an update on Tuesday suggests that Zouma to West Ham won’t happen this summer.
The update is courtesy of Goal, who reports that center-back Nikola Milenkovic appears ready to sign for the Hammers.
On Zouma’s situation, Goal describes the reasons why West Ham is unlikely to sign the 26-year-old, explaining that West Ham cannot afford to match Chelsea’s £ 25m valuation and the defender’s current salary. :
Goal he learned that the Blues are demanding £ 25 million ($ 35 million) for Zouma, who was willing to join West Ham, but they can’t afford to match that valuation or his current salary package at Stamford Bridge.
