Cape Town - Premier League side Everton are preparing £60 million bid for Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha, according to Sky Sports News.

The Ivory Coast international is keen on seeking greener pastures as his four-half-year stay at Selhurst Park has been roller coaster ride which has seen the club fight relegation each season.

The report suggests that the 25-year-old prefers staying in London but is willing to return to the north-west despite a disappointing spell at Manchester United.

Palace have already received £50 million for Aaron Wan-Bissaka who joined United earlier this month and have valued Zaha at cool £80 million.

Scoring 53 goals in 323 games for Palace, Arsenal have seen a £40 million bid rejected while Manchester City are reportedly keen on the player's services as well.

Meanwhile, Everton, who recently revealed plans to their new £500 million stadium, believe that £60 million is enough for the winger.

Everton have already strengthened their squad with Jonas Lossl and Fabian Delph while making Andre Gomes' loan deal permanent.
