Wilfried Zaha’s summer move to Arsenal or Everton looks off.

Crystal Palace rejected Everton’s latest offer of £70million plus James McCarthy, as well as Cenk Tosun for a season-long loan.

The Toffees have been the only outfit that have lodged serious bids for the Ivorian attacker this summer but have not been successful in turning the Palace hierarchy’s heads with their offers.

Furthermore, and tellingly, Everton boss Marco Silva has turned his attention to Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi as an alternative to Zaha.

It’s thought they have seen a £30million bid for Iwobi rejected, although they are expected to return with an improved offer.

This Is Local London:

Arsenal, who saw a £40million bid rejected earlier in the summer for Palace’s star-man, are eager to resolve their defence before turning their attentions to any further attacking purchases.

With Laurent Koscielny’s move to Bordeaux confirmed, manager Unai Emery is looking for a centre back before the transfer window closes on Friday.

Winger Nicolas Pepe joined the Gunners from Lille for £72million last week in a move that eased Palace fans’ fears that Zaha could be making his way to the Emirates, and importantly quashed Emery's pursuit of adding another attacker to his ranks.

The 26-year-old could still leave Selhurst Park this summer should a European team register an interest as the transfer window for clubs in Spain and Germany will remain open until the end of the month.

Fittingly, Everton travel to Selhurst Park for their season opener this weekend.
