Wilfried Zaha

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has handed in a transfer request at the club in his quest to move away from Selhurst Park before the end of the current transfer window.

Wilfried Zaha has been the subject of interest from other Premier League sides like Arsenal and Everton.

The interest from Arsenal was pronounced at the start of this transfer window, while the Everton interest has been in the latter stages of the transfer window.

Crystal Palace have turned down two bids from Everton during this summer’s transfer window.

The latest Everton bid rejected was £70m plus the duo of James McCarthy and Cenk Tosun.

Scottish international James McCarthy and Cenk Tosun are surplus to requirements at Goodison Park.

On their part, Arsenal had a £40m bid rejected for Zaha at the start of July and the £80m asking price from Crystal Palace prompted the Gunners to turn attention to his international teammate Nicolas Pepe.

Arsenal signed Pepe at the end of last month in a club-record deal believed to be around £72m.

Wilfried Zaha scored 11 goals in addition to five assists in the Premier League during the last campaign.
