Arsenal, Everton re-enter Wilfried Zaha race?

Wilfried Zaha news

Palace prepared to sell Zaha this summer

Arsenal and Everton have been alerted by the availability of Wilfried Zaha, who is determined to leave Crystal Palace.

Zaha was the subject of interest from the Gunners last summer, but they were put off by the Eagles' demands for £80m outright.

Eventually, they landed the services of Nicolas Pepe from Lille for a club-record £72m fee, which would be settled through instalments.

Everton, on the other hand, were fancied to sign Zaha prior to their summer transfer deadline, but Palace declined their £70m bid.

According to The Star, the Eagles are likely to sanction Zaha's sale this summer and they have set a lower asking price of £52m.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is said to a secret admirer of the winger, but the package continues to remain beyond the club's reach.

The Toffees, meanwhile, are also reluctant to pay the fee for Zaha, who had a disappointing 2019/2020 season, where he bagged just four goals and five assists.
