Where if anywhere will Wilfried Zaha end up going?

It now appears Italian team Napoli are in the running for the Ivory Coast and Crystal Palace man.

It was rumoured that Crystal Palace had turned down a 55 million pound offer from Everton.

So why Napoli seems to think a bid of 54.6 million pounds will get the deal done. Nobody id quite sure.

According to Sky Sports News Napoli wants to sign Wilfried Zaha and are willing to pay £54.6m for the Palace winger.

Roy Hodgson and his Premier League side are not keen to sell the 26-year-old Ivory Coast international.

He still has four years remaining on his contract.

Both Arsenal and Everton have had proposals turned down this summer. either not the right deal, or simply not enough money.

Arsenal has all but confirmed the signing of Lille forward Nicolas Pepe for an astonishing 72 million pounds.

Everton is about to wrap up the Moise Kean deal from Juventus at the cut-price 28 million pounds.

Zaha wants to leave Palace this summer. he made no secret that his preferred move was across London, to the Emirates, to join the club he followed as a boy, club Arsenal.

Staying in the Premier League is apparently a non-starter.

The pacy winger has not come out to say whether or not the move is of interest to him. While Palace has had nothing to say yet about the matter either.

This one may be a last-minute of the transfer window kind of deal.

The player wants out.

The club doesn’t want to sell and don’t need to sell.

Unless Napoli up their offer.

Everton or arsenal decide they have the extra funds after all.

Or someone jumps in with some last-minute desperation buy.

I am not sure Wilfried Zaha is going anywhere this window and ultimately feel a little disappointed.
