Everton feel that they are light at centre-back, with Michael Keane, Mason Holgate and Yerry Mina their only senior options.
And urgency to recruit more cover will only have increased last night, with emerging young defender Jarrad Branthwaite having limped off injured in the 3-0 win over Salford City at Goodison.
Tomori wasn't included in Chelsea's matchday squad to face Brighton on Monday, with Frank Lampard instead opting to start Andreas Christensen and Zouma.
Antonio Rudiger was on the substitutes' bench, while new signing Thiago Silva is nearing full fitness.

In the meantime, Everton chiefs will try and ship off a number of players in a bid to trim the wage bill at Goodison.
Signings from last summer including Fabian Delph, Bernard, Alex Iwobi and Moise Kean could all be flogged - although Ancelotti would like to keep the latter.
Then forgotten men Cenk Tosun, Yannick Bolasie, Mo Besic and Sandro Ramirez could be axed - as well as ex-Arsenal star Theo Walcott.Timo Werner says picking Chelsea over Liverpool was right decision and Frank Lampard talks were key
