Premier League rivals come in for Wilfried Zaha amid Arsenal negotiations

Everton have emerged as a potential suitor for Arsenal target Wilfried Zaha.

The Crystal Palace winger has made it clear to the Eagles that he is looking to move away from Selhurst Park and he has stated his desire to play for Arsenal, the club he supported as a boy, however, negotiations have stalled with Palace rejecting the Gunners improved bid of £55 million and winger Reiss Nelson, according to The Independent. 

Palace have reportedly placed an £80 million price tag on the player and are in no rush to sell following their sale of Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United.

With Arsenal stalling in their pursuit of the Ivory Coast winger, Everton could now emerge as a suitor with reports emanating that the club have agreed a £28 million deal with PSG that would see the Merseysiders send midfielder Idrissa Gueye to the French capital.


The Toffees have already secured midfielders Andre Gomes from Barcelona and Fabian Delph from Manchester City on permanent deals with the latter determined to bring some silverware to Goodison Park.

"I've been fortunate enough to be in a squad full of winning mentality," Delph said in his first press conference  "I'm not going to change coming here. The main goal is to be successful and win something.

"I'm aware the club hasn't won something in a long time. That's top of my list to hopefully try and push the lads and them to push me and win something.

"[The winning mentality] probably comes easier to me because I'm one of the older players. You don't have to be the best player in the team to influence people, to drive and to set standards high with good habits.

"The winning mentality is massive. Everyone needs to be on it and have that mentality in training. There's no egos here. A great work ethic and the staff are fantastic."
