Everton table £55m + 2 player offer for Wilfried Zaha – Sky

As per a report from Sky Sports News, Everton have tabled an improved cash-plus-player offer for Wilfried Zaha.

Palace standout

The story surrounding the future of Eagles’ star man Zaha has proven one of the talking points of the summer transfer window so far.

On the back of a standout campaign last time out, during which he racked up 10 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League, reports mounted over the last month that Palace’s London rivals Arsenal had set their sights firmly on Zaha.

The Gunners’ subsequent proposals, however, fell well short of the Ivorian’s valuation.

Palace’s stout stance eventually saw Arsenal turn their attentions elsewhere, with the capital giants now widely-reported to be on the verge of securing the signature of Lille wide-man Nicolas Pepe.

Everton table fresh bid

As such, this has since opened the door for any and all other suitors of Zaha to step forward.

The club to have done so with the most intent to this point, meanwhile, have been Everton.

The Toffees are thought to be on the lookout for reinforcements out wide, on the back of Ademola Lookman’s departure for RB Leipzig.

And Marco Silva and co. evidently feel as though Zaha is the kind of player who could push the club to the next level in their hopes of cracking the long-established Premier League top-6 pecking order.

The Merseysiders’ first bid for the Palace star, though, worth a rumoured £52 million, was quickly shut down by the Selhurst hierarchy.

However, as per the aforementioned update from Sky Sports News this evening, Everton are evidently not ready to give up in their pursuit of Zaha without a fight.

The Toffees are said to have tabled an improved offer, worth £55 million, along with both Cenk Tosun and James McCarthy, for the 26-year-old:
