Everton have made second bid worth £55m, plus Cenk Tosun and James McCarthy to Crystal Palace for Wilfried Zaha, according toSky Sports.
Everton reportedly had an opening £52m bid for Zaha rejected, with the London club adamant the Ivorian will not be leaving Selhurst Park this summer. Zaha had previously been a target for Arsenal but their £72m move for Lille’s Nicolas Pépé has cooled their interest in the 26-year-old, with Silva’s side emerging as his most likely suitors, even if they are unlikely to match Palace’s £80m valuation .
Zaha signed a contract lasting until 2023 last summer and Palace are confident he will be at the club for the start of the season, although Roy Hodgson has admitted he is in the dark about the situation.
“Most of what’s going on with Wilfried is going on between him and the chairman,” the manager said. “I can’t enlighten you at all, I know what you know, I guess. I know it through reading on your websites or newspapers that this or that’s happening.”
