Everton enter race for £70million Wilfried Zaha but face competition from Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham

The Daily Mail claim new Toffees boss Marco Silva is a huge admirer of the Crystal Palace winger, and taking him to Goodison Park would be seen as a huge statement of intent.

But SunSport revealed yesterday the Bundesliga giants are keen on the 25-year-old, who has rejected a new £125,000-a-week contract at Selhurst Park.

Spurs are long-term admirers of the Ivory Coast international but have so far not been prepared to meet Palace’s £70million valuation.

The price tag could also put off Everton, who are looking to offload players to raise funds to strengthen the squad.

Former Palace winger Yannick Bolasie could be sold to help fund a tilt at Zaha if he decides to leave South London this summer.

Bolasie is currently in Austria with the rest of the Toffees squad for their week-long training camp but has been linked with a move to Turkish side Fenerbache.

Everton are set for talks with Ademola Lookman, who is being chased by RB Leipzig after impressing during his loan spell last season.

Leipzig chief Ralf Rangnick claims the former Charlton kid is keen on continuing his career in Germany.

But Silva and director of football Marcel Brands have earmarked Lookman as an integral part of the club’s future and are desperate for him to stay.

Meanwhile, Henry Onyekuru departed Goodison Park this week to join Galatasaray on a season-long loan deal.
