Wilfried Zaha trains alone at Crystal Palace as Everton transfer talk rumbles on

Who knows what is going to happen?

Wilfried Zaha has trained away from his Crystal Palace teammates as speculation continues about a move to Everton.

Reports on Sky Sports News suggested Zaha failed to train at all with the club on Thursday morning but the Daily Mail reports that Zaha DID report for training, but trained on his own in the club’s gym away from his teammates.

The Ivory Coast forward handed in a transfer request yesterday in an attempt to force a move away from the Eagles.

Zaha is reportedly furious that the club have rejected bids from Everton for his services after they promised last year to accept any “reasonable offers” for him.

Palace are reluctant to let the forward go this close to the deadline and are believed to value him at around £100m.

Everton are unlikely to go that high, even with players such as Cenk Tosun chucked in, so the deal may rest on how far Zaha is prepared to go to force this issue.

The Eagles have been linked with a late move for RB Leipzig forward Jean-Kévin Augustin (who has previously been linked with Everton too) so if he comes in, that may mean Zaha will belatedly be allowed to move on.
