Everton deny McCarthy-Tosun-plus-cash offer for Crystal Palace's Zaha

Everton's New Wilfried Zaha Offer Includes Swap Deal For Irish Midfielder James McCarthy

Everton's New Wilfried Zaha Offer Includes Swap Deal For Irish Midfielder James McCarthy

Palace have already reportedly rejected a cash-only bid of 52-million for Zaha but Everton say those reports of a second offer are wide of the mark.

Previously rumours have circled that Palace have made an £8 million offer for McCarthy.

The Serie A side had targeted Zaha's Ivory Coast team-mate Nicolas Pepe but failed to land the 24-year-old, who has agreed a move to Arsenal.

Everton then tried their luck with a move for Zaha but saw their £55m offer turned down and were told the Eagles's star man was not for sale.

Everton has been willing to mix it up in the transfer market this offseason as it looks to improve its squad.

But his efforts for both City and Portugal haven't been recognised by Federation Internationale de Football Association . Brazil's Marta - who took home her sixth world player of the year award last year - has also been nominated.

"Everton categorically denies a bid has been submitted to Crystal Palace for Wilfried Zaha that included an increased sum plus Cenk Tosun and James McCarthy", the Toffees revealed in a statement to Sky Sports.

"Everton and Crystal Palace have a very good relationship".

But Tottenham are apparently not plotting a swoop for Zaha at present, despite reported interest in 2016, when they made a bid for him, according to the Guardian.

On the back of a standout campaign last time out, during which he racked up 10 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League, reports mounted over the last month that Palace's London rivals Arsenal had set their sights firmly on Zaha.

At the same time, Everton is on the verge of selling Idrissa Gueye to Paris Saint-Germain, though Everton has been linked with a number of central midfield replacements, including Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko. A deal could be announced on Tuesday.
