Crystal Palace have rejected a £52 million bid from Everton for the signing of Wilfried Zaha, according to the Guardian.

The winger’s future has been up in the air all summer, with various reports suggesting he will leave Selhurst Park after enjoying an excellent second spell there.

Arsenal have been seen as a leading candidate for Zaha’s signature, but they have now turned their attention to Lille wide man Nicolas Pepe.

Everton now arguably look like the favourites to snap up the 26-year-old should he leave, but it is clear that Palace are reluctant to sell.

The latest development has seen a £52 million bid turned down, with the Eagles “adamant the Ivorian will not be leaving Selhurst Park this summer”.

Zaha signed a new deal at Palace last year that doesn’t expire until 2023, and they are confident that he will be at the club come the end of the transfer window.
