Wilfried Zaha TEAMtalk

Everton target Wilfried Zaha has reportedly handed in a transfer request at Crystal Palace.

The Ivory Coast international looks to be making a bid to leave the club before the transfer window closes on Thursday, according to a new report from Sky Sports.

Reports from earlier in the week suggested that Everton offered £70m plus James McCarthy and striker Cenk Tosun on loan.

Crystal Palace turned down the bid and are said to be holding out for £100m for Zaha, who was a key performer last season, in which he scored 10 league goals.

Marco Silva is keen on the winger as he looks to form a new-look attack at the Toffees, with Moise Kean already joining from Juventus.

It’s also been reported that Serie A side Napoli are weighing up an offer for Zaha, as Carlo Ancelotti looks to build a side capable of challenging perennial champions Juventus for the Italian title.

With the English transfer window closing at 5pm on Thursday, expect this transfer saga to go right down to the wire.
