Wilfried Zaha

Merseyside giants Everton are reportedly eyeing a swap bid for in-demand Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

This is according to the widespread report coming out of the British media.

Crystal Palace star Zaha has already told senior club officials that he wants a new challenge ahead of the 2019/20 season scheduled to start on the 8th of August.

The specific report from The Telegraph revealed that Everton are ready to offer cash plus player for Wilfried Zaha.

Everton value the player at £70m though the Eagles want £10m more for their best player.

Crystal Palace had earlier rejected a £40m bid from North London giants Arsenal with the South Londoners holding out for £80m for Wilfried Zaha.

Everton are preparing an offer of £60m plus striker Cenk Tosun (rated at £10m) for Ivorian international Zaha.

German Bundesliga Outfit Schalke 04 were thought to be interested in a deal for Everton outcast Cenk Tosun.

It remains to be seen whether the offer from Everton will be enough to tempt Crystal Palace to sanction the sale of the 26-year-old winger.

Wilfried Zaha prefers a move to Arsenal whom he supported as a boy but the Gunners are still a long way from his valuation.
