According to The Sun, Everton are lining up a transfer package worth £100m in their bid to bring Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha to Goodison Park, and Eagles fans have all produced the same reaction on Twitter.
The Sun report that the Toffees’ offer would consist of £65m cash as well as midfielder James McCarthy and striker Cenk Tosun, with the former a target for the south London outfit if Sky Sports’ live transfer blog (August 6, 11:25am) is to be believed.
Zaha has been heavily linked with a move away from Selhurst Park throughout the summer transfer window, with a recent report in The Independent saying that the Ivory Coast international expects to join the blue half of Merseyside before Thursday’s deadline.
Eagles supporters have taken to social media to give their thoughts on The Sun’s report, and they are all thinking the same thing.
The proposed deal would see Tosun and McCarthy valued at £35m, and Palace fans clearly don’t feel the duo should be rated that high – that isn’t too surprising given the former has struggled to impress with just nine goals in 43 appearances following his £27m move to Goodison Park in 2017, and the latter has been injury prone in recent seasons.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Think you need to redo the math ?

£65+£12+£6= £83m….. not £100m.
Still might be enough to tempt Parish & co.
I’m not convinced that Zaha wants to go there.

100m? McCarthy and Tosun are worth about £15m together?
