Everton Bid For Arsenal Target Rejected

Wilfried Zaha

Premier League club Crystal have turned down a big bid from fellow top flight side Everton for one of their best players.

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha is undoubtedly one of the best players in the team and he has been the subject of bids from other Premier League sides including Everton.

The Toffees made a £52m bid for Zaha at the week and it was swiftly rejected by Crystal Palace according to the publication from the stables of the Daily Mail.

Widespread British media reports had claimed that Crystal Palace are holding out for £80m for the Ivorian international attacker on the back of the £40m bid from Arsenal.

Just like the latest bid from Everton, the aforementioned Arsenal bid was also rejected by the Eagles.

It appears the Gunners have moved on from Zaha with the North London giants close to signing a fellow winger and compatriot Nicolas Pepe from French Ligue 1 club Lille in a £72m deal.

Everton have made an opening bid that was immediately turned down and it remains to be seen whether they will make a followup offer for the 26-year-old.

For now, it looks like its £80m or nothing for Crystal Palace for clubs interested in the former Manchester United player.
