Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha expects to seal a move to Everton, according to The Independent.
The Ivory Coast international has been desperate to leave Selhurst Park this summer, with Sky Sports reporting last month that he has asked to leave the club.
It is believed that Palace will accept a bid of £65m for the 26-year-old, as long as it is upfront, with Everton willing to meet that, though the offer’s structure is still being worked on.
Zaha started 34 Premier League games last season, scoring 10 goals and making five assists, as per WhoScored.
He completed 1.6 key passes and 3.4 dribbles, highlighting how dangerous and direct he can be in attack.
Having the 26-year-old on one wing and Richarlison on the other would be very threatening, with the Brazilian having scored 13 goals and assisted once in 32 starts and three substitute appearances last season, as well as making 0.6 key passes and 1.1 dribbles per game.
In addition, Everton will have Moise Kean as their striker after his recent signing. The Italian was prolific last season, scoring six goals in just five starts and eight substitute appearances during the Serie A campaign.
Having these three combine at Everton would likely make Goodison Park a very tough place to go for opposition defenders, with the directness both wingers have on the ball and each of their potency in front of goal.
If Everton manage to sign Zaha it will be an incredible signing for the club, which would add even greater value to their previous ones this summer.
The Palace talisman has already shown what he can do in the Premier League and that he can thoroughly improve this Everton side.
If he does sign, Everton could begin to see a push for Europe as a very real possibility.
