Everton have submitted a late offer for Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha ahead of Arsenal’s rumoured interest in the Ivory Coast international. The winger, who has recently been linked with a move away from the Eagles, had been desperate for a transfer to the Gunners but Arsenal’s bid of £40 million has been rejected.
Everton boss Marco Silva has submitted a competitive bid for the attacking player and it is believed to still be some way off of Palace’s transfer valuation for Zaha of around £80 million. Everton have entered the race with an initial bid of £55 million.
It is understood that Zaha still dreams for and holds hope that he can make a move to Arsenal, but the Gunners are currently cash strapped and limited in their transfer budget for this window.
