According to reports from Sky Sports, Wilfried Zaha has handed in a transfer request at Crystal Palace.
Everton are heavily interested in signing the 26-year-old winger and have had two bids rejected for the player already.
According to reports from The Guardian, Everton submitted a bid in the region of £70 million plus two players – Cenk Tosun and James McCarthy – but Palace have rejected the offer.
The Eagles fear that they won’t be able to replace their talisman in such a short time. Palace have insisted they will not accept less than £100m for the Ivory Coast international.
However, Zaha has now handed in a transfer request as he feels the time is right for him to move to a bigger club and test himself at a higher level.
The news will come as a massive boost for Everton, and it remains to be seen whether they come up with an improved offer for him before Thursday’s deadline.
