Crystal Palace celebrate vs Leicester

Marco Silva is very keen to bring Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha to Everton this summer, according to The Mirror.

Palace have recently offered Zaha a £125,000 per-week contract but Zaha has yet to accept it.

This has put several clubs on red alert including Everton. However, they may also face competition from Tottenham for Zaha’s signature.

Poor start

Despite the very poor start to the season Crystal Palace had, they were able to finish in 11th place for the 2017/18 season.

A big part of why Palace were able to finish 11th despite not scoring a single goal in their first seven league games, was due to Wilfried Zaha.

Return from injury

Zaha missed six of Palace’s first seven league games last season. But once he returned from injury vs Chelsea Zaha would score the goal that would see Palace pick up their first win and points of the season.

Wilfried Zaha would finish the 2017/18 season with nine goals and five assists from 29 league games, his best return in a Premier League season.

Zaha also showed what a versatile player he can be as Zaha played left wing, right wing and centre-forward throughout last season.

The Palace forward played very well in all of these positions, he is extremely fast, one of the best dribblers in the league and now he is adding more goals to his game Zaha is quickly becoming a top talent.

Also, Zaha is only 25 years of age, meaning he still has his best years ahead of him and Palace are keen to ensure he spends those years with them.

However, it now looks as though he could be set for a move to Everton.
