Everton have confirmed they will no longer be pursing a players-plus-cash bid for the Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha this summer. Zaha was a target for manager Marco Silva but, having had an offer rejected over the weekend, they have withdrawn their interest although that has not stopped claims suggesting they had returned on Monday with an improved cash bid plus midfielder James McCarthy and striker Cenk Tosun.

“Everton Football Club categorically denies that a bid has been submitted to Crystal Palace for Wilfried Zaha that included an increased sum plus Cenk Tosun and James McCarthy,” a statement from the club read. “Everton and Crystal Palace have a very good relationship. A bid was made over the weekend which was turned down. Both clubs agreed that was the end of the matter.” The news will come as a relief to the hierarchy at Selhurst Park, who are determined to see their Ivory Coast star remain with the Eagles.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
