Everton join chase for Zaha

| Tuesday, 10 July 2018 83comments  |  Jump to last
Marco Silva is keen to make Wilfried Zaha his first signing since coming on board as Everton manager, claim the Daily Mail.

The 25-year-old Crystal Palace star is also wanted by Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur and could fetch as much as £70m, although that price has apparently discouraged the North Londoners.

The report claims that the Blues would look to offload Yannick Bolasie to part -und the acquisition of Zaha.

Interesting, but can’t see it.

I agree Steve, can't see this happening at all. He would command a massive fee, and. I don't think we'll see any transfer from 40m up.. probably nothing from 30 up.

Give him a miss, had his chance at Man Utd and didn't make the mark. Certainly isn't worth the cash.

How much? Tierney £25 million, Zaha up to £70 million.

Has the world gone mad? Ridiculous.

This is such bullshit. Never gonna happen.

I hope that price also discourages Everton. We have Lookman to cater for.
Fran Mitchell
7 Posted 10/07/2018 at 00:45:42
Ridiculous fee. Good but not world class player.

We are going for players who have the potential to double/triple in value, not players already at peak. So call this story the bullshit it is.

Lookman hopefully can become as good as Zaha.

It was discussed on the Tierney thread on whether transfer rumours should be still published on TW. How's about just putting them on if they are half way believable! This one hardly warrants comment.

According to The Esk on twitter:

Elstone est for 17/18, revenues £186.5m. Operating expenses (incl. wages of £140m) £200.6m. Operating loss £14.1m. Season 18/19 no European football so revenue est £176m unless increase in commercial income. Therefore wage bill must fall by £25m to break even.

Arguably other operating costs could be cut but given we outsource a lot of activities and the stadium costs continue, might be difficult to achieve many savings. Some costs may be capitalised once planning permission is granted which would help.

He also says that the outgoings so far from Everton FC may have saved in the region of £12 Million, therefore by my calculations we may have to reduce the wage bill by a further £13 Million per year.

I would think that would reduce our chances of bringing in any star players on exorbitant wages, anytime soon. It's a hard pill to swallow for some, but it's just the reality of the situation as the club bought too many duds on long-term and expensive contracts in recent years.

Fuck right off. Bolasie Mk 2.

The kind of player who generally rips Everton apart then does nothing for months on end. A la Chris Brunt, Seb Larsson... there's more.

Lee Paige
11 Posted 10/07/2018 at 03:26:01
I don't want him, he will be like Bolasie. Also, while I like The Esk, I take what he says with a pinch of salt.
Tony Everan
12 Posted 10/07/2018 at 06:03:30
We are perceived to be soft touches. So every player’s agent will be using us to drum up fees and wages so their players can get the deal they want.

The agent is saying we are interested to try and manufacture a move to a bigger London club than Crystal Palace.

Lewis Barclay

No and no.
Drew O'Neall
14 Posted 10/07/2018 at 07:06:42
Overvalued, no end product, flatters to deceive, and less good than Bolasie.

He has the raw ingredients but needs to buckle down and learn.

Charlie Dixon
15 Posted 10/07/2018 at 07:22:41
“Less good than Bolasie” — what a load of nonsense. Massive upgrade on him but a ridiculous fee.

If we could swap the pair plus £20M, it would be a great bit of business. Sadly, I doubt the article carries any weight at all!

Ian Bennett
16 Posted 10/07/2018 at 07:45:55
European money might not be £10m, but the lower league placing, no Europa League and more managerial sackings is a hole to be filled.

31 days to shift out upwards of 8 players most fans don't think good enough long-term, and make 4 or so critical signings to avoid another season of struggle. It's a massive month for Everton.

Rick Pattinson
17 Posted 10/07/2018 at 07:55:02
Nana — it's probably Saha... not Zaha... haha!
Jim Bennings
18 Posted 10/07/2018 at 08:01:23
I think we all know we will be starting the season with tanker turners Keane and Jagielka in defence and Martina or Kenny left-back as soon as Baines picks up his first of now annual two-month injury.

The midfield will be the usual static flat-paced non-entity that is was last season.

Calvert-Lewin will run aimlessly down blind alleys for three or four months, not actually looking like scoring or even connecting cleanly with a single shot on goal... but don't worry — our fans will be sold with “Oooh but he works hard, he'll be better than Kane and Messi put together when he's 24.”

And we wonder why this club hasn't been bothered about trying to hit success this past 20 years?

Because the board knows the fans are quite happy to always be tomorrow's club (only thing is, tomorrow never comes with Everton; we have been saying the same thing for 10 or more years).

Football is a game for today, not tomorrow!!

Ray (#20),

I haven't been optimistic about Everton since the end of Martinez's first season.

I can't get optimistic anymore about a team of players that continuously flounders, blames other factors and, for nigh on 20 years as a club, just consistently produces failure in mass commodities, be it trophies or even something as trivial as a woeful Merseyside derby record.

There might come a day when I'm optimistic about Everton again but optimism needs to be earned — not taken as a blue-tinted blind faith.

Rob Baker
23 Posted 10/07/2018 at 08:36:52
I saw him twice last season and he was the best player on the park both times. However, his end product is often poor and does not score enough goals. If he cost £25M, I'd say Yes... but stupid money? No, ta.
Steve Brown
24 Posted 10/07/2018 at 08:52:22
Surely the decimal point has been wrongly positioned in that transfer fee.
Mike Gwyer
25 Posted 10/07/2018 at 09:06:24

Just take a look at the positives first, mate, and then let's see what happens:

1) Sigurdsson will get the No 10 role. Definitely.
2) Coleman & Baines will play right-back and left-back. They are not injured.
3) Calvert-Lewin will be a sub at best. Tosun will play No 9.
4) Walcott and Lookman will play wide of Sigurdsson.
5) Pickford will be in goal.
6) There will be money to spend and it's obvious we need a new left-back, an attacking midfielder, and a centre-back.

So let's see what happens. Yep, I know we spunked hundreds of millions last year but this is a new season, a new campaign. We have a new boss with new ideas who wants to play football – yes, football – which most Blues have not seen for the past year. But, most of all Jim, I have a season ticket so please, let's look at the positives.

Sam Hoare
26 Posted 10/07/2018 at 09:12:25
He's definitely better than Bolasie and should have been the player we paid Crystal Palace £28m for.

Can't see it now.

Seems like Brands and Silva are taking their time, either assessing players or waiting's to see what deadwood they can shift, or most likely both. I am guessing the likes of Williams, Mirallas etc are proving hard to sell.

Martin Reppion
27 Posted 10/07/2018 at 09:21:45
I got so much enjoyment watching Zaha in the first half of last season. Not for his football. But because until he changed his hairstyle he was the spitting image of Dwayne Dibley (non-Red Dwarf fans, move on).

But, once he'd changed that, he was harder to spot. Usually because he was having a half-arsed performance and living on his overblown reputation.

Les Green
28 Posted 10/07/2018 at 09:42:21
He can't still be 25 surely. Maybe in Yakubu years...
Clive Rogers
29 Posted 10/07/2018 at 09:44:59
I can’t see him wanting to come to us.
Derek Thomas
30 Posted 10/07/2018 at 09:48:50
Shouldn't happen at £70M, might happen at half that, but then Spurs will nip in and he won't have to move house.

Not going to happen, nor should it; he's good, but not that good...

James Stewart
31 Posted 10/07/2018 at 10:07:55
No chance. Zaha is at his peak.

One of the Moyes’s best qualities was he would identify players not at their peak value, Arteta, Pienaar, etc... Players who had lost their way.

We haven’t done that for a long time and need to get back to it in my opinion.

Brian Harrison
32 Posted 10/07/2018 at 10:56:23
Another day and yet another player linked with us, I think if we bought all the players supposedly linked to us, Moshiri would be skint.

The majority of it is pure speculation, and even more amusing is the journalists who write this nonsense have absolutely no idea who Silva and Brands are after. Most of these stories are pure fiction, and many are fed to the press by agents wishing to create interest in their player.

Believe nothing till you see the player at Finch Farm wearing our kit.

Steve Ferns
33 Posted 10/07/2018 at 10:59:58
Most of us are enjoying watching England this World Cup. They have brought disenchanted Englishmen like myself back into the fold.

England are not a team full of great players. It could be argued that only Harry Kane is truly world class. The team has got to where it has by a bit of luck, a lot of hard work, some first-class organisation and management, and a lot of momentum.

There is a lot to be said for momentum in football. How often have we seen a good club hit a bad patch and hit an iceberg and instead of bouncing off it and turning around fast, things seem to get worse and worse. Leicester were the opposite and got so much momentum that they were unstoppable and achieved the impossible.

I really wanted to see a first-class coach at Everton who could do the hard work on the training ground. I can see that being done. I can also see that there is change at Everton in how they are dealing with their own media output (lots of it, almost daily) and how others (such as John Blaine of EFC Shareholders Association) say the club are dealing with and more importantly listening to them. Change is afoot. With a bit of luck, some good management and organisation, then I think we can start to gain that momentum that can carry us far.

If you go through the side and consider each of the players at their best, then I think we have a decent side that is good enough for 7th, and maybe more with a bit of luck and momentum and some bad luck elsewhere.

Players like Keane and Schneiderlin are not as bad as they played last season. Players like Sandro and Klaassen may suddenly come good. There is a different style of play, a different tempo, a different vision. Things are, well, different. So, why can't Sandro or Klaassen suddenly perform well if things have changed.

Even Mo Besic, and I'm one of his biggest critics, is there on the training videos, giving it his all and not looking out of place. Sure you can't tell much from watching they boot a ball about in a close control drill for just 30 seconds or so. My only point is don't be surprised at how different things can be, and for the better.

Change is afoot and it's time to shake off the pessimism and have some hope for the future that Everton is changing for the better.

Dennis Stevens
34 Posted 10/07/2018 at 11:00:22
Silva will be expected to find what he needs to make a team from the huge squad he's inherited, I'm sure. I expect very few incomings, one or two – maybe none. If we only buy one player, I hope it's a very large, very fast central defender.
Andrew Ellams
35 Posted 10/07/2018 at 11:33:34
We are not signing anybody of any merit this summer.
Laurie Hartley
36 Posted 10/07/2018 at 11:36:45
I don't believe we are in for Zaha and certainly not for £70m.

We don't need another winger. What we need is at least one centre-half – we could buy two and a left-back for £70m.

Dale Rose
37 Posted 10/07/2018 at 13:26:20
Post #25, Mike, bang on the money — no bullshit, no stats, just facts.

Blah blah blah blah — he won't be coming here.
Kunal Desai

No chance, he wouldn't even consider us.
Tom Bowers
40 Posted 10/07/2018 at 13:32:53
Zaha is very much like Sterling. Gets an awful amount of the ball because of his speed but doesn't deliver as much as he should.

He is dangerous though and maybe Everton should send Bolasie back in part exchange if they really want him.

Anthony Hawkins
41 Posted 10/07/2018 at 13:33:28
To everyone suggesting we're not signing anyone of merit in this window - we absolutely have to sign better players in this window. We MUST.

The lesson learned from a few seasons back where the club didn't sign anyone should be a stark warning against assuming a good quality team will translate from one season to the next. All teams need freshening up and new legs.

If we move from last season into this season with the same squad, we will be relegated. It wasn't just the manager at fault last season.

Tony Abrahams
42 Posted 10/07/2018 at 13:47:59
I hope we can just sign 3 good players, and intergrate them into what must already be the newest squad of players in the Premier League.
Derek Taylor
43 Posted 10/07/2018 at 13:54:11
I think Moshiri is convinced that Silva can get a lot more from last season's squad whilst Brands is here to clear the decks of unwanted players.

Don't forget we managed to claim eighth playing abject shite so if the new man improves them one iota we should see sixth or seventh without major signings.

I'm consigned to 'same again'.

Derek Taylor
44 Posted 10/07/2018 at 13:55:08
Probably 'resigned' to it as well!
Jamie Evans
45 Posted 10/07/2018 at 14:22:16
My arse. My absolute arse.

Mike (#25), fantastic post, now your talking. Onwards and upwards Evertonians.

As for any of you miserable lot, may I suggest you go on a LFC forum if you don't like us anymore.

If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.

Jay Harris
46 Posted 10/07/2018 at 14:48:42
I don't know how long youve been supporting the Blues but I have watched the ups and downs for 60 years now and while I want to feel optimistic all the warning signs are still there.

Silva is hardly an inspired signing even though Steve Ferns is persuading us of his merits.

This squad has got older and poor performing over 3 managers since Moyes left so there is obviously an issue somewhere.

We leak goals like a sieve unless we play the Allardyce way and even then we got a couple of thrashings.

We seem to have reverted to Kenwright controlling the transfers and typically we are not signing anyone with the opening game only 3 or 4 weeks away.

My biggest turn to pessimism was when we allegedly pulled out of the Tierney deal and are now being linked with Bertrand.

That is not ambition.

Ambition is when you go for and get the best not the second or third best.

I hope I am wrong but I do not see progress.

Darren Murphy
47 Posted 10/07/2018 at 15:14:16
@25 Mike, couldn't of put it any better man.

Regards Zahahahaaa, in your dreams is he worth £70 mill, best offer we can bring is let them have Bolasie back plus £5 million, he's a better player in my opinion but not £70 million... if that's true. Saying that a club can value whatever they feel for their players.

Hurry up and sign some players ffs. I'm an impatient feck as it is and eBay don't sell virtues.

Phil Martin
48 Posted 10/07/2018 at 15:16:40
How can we be so short of cash from last season?

We sold Rom for £75-90M ...Barkley for £15M Rooney for £15M.

Surely we're almost break-even — if not in profit from last year?

Will Mabon
49 Posted 10/07/2018 at 15:47:56
"...had his chance at Man Utd and didn't make the mark".

Rumours at the time were that he took at least one chance, and made his mark on David Moyes's daughter. May've hastened his departure.

Fran Mitchell
50 Posted 10/07/2018 at 16:31:31
When you see the prices being quoted, can't help but feel we've got shafted on seeing Lukaku, arguably the top performing striker at the World Cup.
Paul Birmingham
51 Posted 10/07/2018 at 16:33:20
Personally, I think this journo hype and Everton's alleged transfer strategy this summer would suggest this level of outlay would be unrealistic.

Also, like most days in pre-season, the media goes into overdrive with unfounded rumours.

I hope, that EFC does get some good deals done, sooner rather than later.

Tom Bowers
52 Posted 10/07/2018 at 16:39:55
I think all we can do is be optimistic despite what has gone on in recent seasons. You can never tell who will excel, whether it be players, a team as a whole or a coach.

Nobody would have ever thought Ranieri would do so well at Leicester so let's not pan Silva yet. You very rarely get class acquisitions for buttons. Bargain signings like Tim Cahill only come along every blue moon.

The present Everton senior squad (i.e. most of those who started most games last season) may still form the backbone of the new squad but we will all expect a big improvement in spirit and commitment.

According to recent news items there appears to be many youngsters at the club chomping at the bit to get a chance and I hope Silva will give them that chance whenever possible.

The rumors (fake news etc.) will abound of course so the Zaha link is to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Brian Williams
53 Posted 10/07/2018 at 16:40:50
I can only see the "outs" being sooner rather than later. Silva and Brands will want to take as much time as possible to assess who they can work with and who they can't. I'd expect to see "attempts" to move players on when the squad returns from Austria.

As for incomings, it's going to be in the last week of the window, I reckon.

Clive Rogers
54 Posted 10/07/2018 at 16:49:07
The window closes four weeks on Thursday. Just sayin’.
Pat Kelly
55 Posted 10/07/2018 at 16:49:20
Let's not panic buy. Silva and Brands have spoken to Kenwright about our targets and listened to his advice. There's still plenty of time to get Rooney back.
Paul Ellam
56 Posted 10/07/2018 at 17:06:33
Getting bit fed up of being "linked" with this player and that player when there is little chance we will sign anyone!

If we have no money, let's say it. And then these "sources" can stop putting our names against every bloody player available in the world!

Brent Stephens
57 Posted 10/07/2018 at 17:09:15
Clive. So we have 4 weeks still. Just sayin'.
Liam Reilly
58 Posted 10/07/2018 at 17:38:33
I must be in the minority thinking that the squad doesn't need major surgery; just a couple of additions and shedding some of the dead wood.

There's pace in the youth and experience throughout the squad. We may not be challenging for any league titles but I'd be optimistic that we could give some of the so-called bigger sides a game (even on their turf) and maybe a run at a cup.

There's no way the club will spend £70 Million on any player and rightly so.

Tony Twist
59 Posted 10/07/2018 at 21:30:43
I thought Everton might have changed with the new DOF but it doesn't seem so. We can only hope Silva knows his stuff because any new arrivals, some of which we really need, should be bought and now in Austria getting to know everyone.

We just seem to lurch from one season to the next hoping that we will have enough of a side to survive.

Peter Roberts
60 Posted 10/07/2018 at 21:44:15
£70m should be getting you a Lingard or Eriksen, someone who is an international regular.

The fact this clown who spends more of his time on the floor than Neymar is subsequently nowhere near the England team leads me to believe this transfer figure is either delusional or dreamt up by the media. We won't spend £70m on three players this summer, never mind a one-trick showpony.

Martin Nicholls
61 Posted 10/07/2018 at 21:52:40
Pete (#61) – Lingard? £70million?

"This clown" as you call Zaha, isn't English – perhaps that's why he's "nowhere near the England team"?

Steve Ferns
62 Posted 10/07/2018 at 21:57:47
Wel,l Martin, he is English. He lived in England ever since he was 4. But he choose to represent the country of his birth and of his parents. Which is what you meant, I'm sure.

It's also worth noting that England did try to keep him from playing for the Ivory Coast too, and he does have 2 England Caps.

Martin Nicholls
63 Posted 10/07/2018 at 22:02:17
That's exactly what I meant, Steve.
Christy Ring
64 Posted 10/07/2018 at 22:07:40
I'd rather save the £70m by keeping Lookman, and start by buying Tierney for £20m+.
Andrew Ellams
65 Posted 10/07/2018 at 22:08:08
Anybody else think last summer was one big bash from Moshiri and now the wallet is shut to save up for the new stadium?
Steve Ferns
66 Posted 10/07/2018 at 22:20:37
Not at all Andrew. It is clearly a change in approach.

Approach 1, sign all the best players with Premier League experience you can, from the "lesser clubs" and try to get the best players from Europe. Sign players for now – "signings must be starters". Get a manager in who is a recognised great tactician and has a history of assembling squads and gelling them instantly, which is what Koeman did a couple of times after more or less the entire team was sold when Pochettino left, and then from under him at the end of his first season. Hire a Director of Football who can spot brilliant players who can make an immediate impact, like Drogba, Mahrez, Kante, and Vardy. Give everyone massive wages to make them come.

Approach 2, hire a great coach. Get him to bring the best out of the players we have. Get a Director of Football in who is here for the long term, and tell him to sign players for the future, to utilise the academy. Recognise we cannot sign Messi, but maybe we can identify an 18-year-old elsewhere who could become such a player. Youth coaches and first team coaches work in tandem to develop players to slot into the first team, and so the squad needs to be thin enough to have space for 5 or 6 "graduates" a year. Selling off fringe players, mostly "graduates" who have failed to make the step up.

Also, the £130m a year wage bill is a major concern. The club is a long way from breaking even, and needs to shave £30m off it to do so. So expect wages (big wages not volume of players – ie, 10 Rooneys = 1 Calvert-Lewin – to keep going out of the club before we load any more wages on.

Tony Everan
67 Posted 10/07/2018 at 22:25:08
Liam (#59),

I am not sure you are in the minority, I also think 2 quality signings maybe 3. Along with telling Lookman he is staying put and will be an important part of the first-team squad.

John Kavanagh
68 Posted 10/07/2018 at 23:01:32
Zaha, the new Bolasie. Not a clever buy when you still have the old one to get rid of. Get Lookman playing instead and save the club and fans a lot of grief. Thank God this is mere press gibberish concocted after 26 pints in a pub down in Lahn Dhan.
Simon Smith
69 Posted 11/07/2018 at 08:02:52
Zaha would be a massive statement.
Drew O'Neall
70 Posted 11/07/2018 at 11:56:59
Shaqiri has a £13.5m relegation release clause.
Sam Hoare
71 Posted 11/07/2018 at 15:38:38
1. Continue cutting wage bill.
2. Improve capabilities/effectiveness of remaining players.
3. Add 2 or 3 players who will add to the first team and have their best years ahead of them.

Zaha could fit into objective 3 though think we’ll be looking for much better value for money. Possibly even more loans than we’ve had in recent years as Silva/Brands wants to give as much of a chance to our youth talent.

Fred Smith
72 Posted 11/07/2018 at 22:56:22
He has more talent than all our forward players put together. Sign him up. He would probably go somewhere in a better side than us, though.
Jason Broome
73 Posted 12/07/2018 at 14:25:55
He has pace, creativity and can change a game in an instant... Better than Bolasie and a good choice. At £70 Million though... cough... no chance!
James Stewart
74 Posted 12/07/2018 at 15:06:19
£70M is a joke. Seri has just gone to Fulham of all places for a modest £18M. Class Champions League level playmaker. Some amazing players and deals being done, just not by us.
Tony Everan
75 Posted 12/07/2018 at 19:12:48
Today’s rumour is we’ve offered 22m + add ons for Watford’s Doucore.

I don’t think Watford will be very amenable towards us. I get the feeling that Brands is finding it tougher than he thought to attract the quality of player we want. Particularly at a price where we are not being taken to the cleaners.

Ash Moore
76 Posted 12/07/2018 at 19:27:42
This is the other end of last summers misguided recruitment. Having paid well over the odds for shite previously, the expectation is there that we will do again. Having spunked 45 million quid on one above average player last summer, teams are quite prepared to play hard ball with us.
Without some investment this squad does not look good enough for the top six.
Alan McGuffog
77 Posted 12/07/2018 at 19:27:57
I like the cut of the jib of that Serbian guy, Emerlist Davjack. Get him in, that would be really Nice.
Sam Hoare

I’m very surprised Fulham have managed to get Seri for only £18m. Perhaps because he wasn’t as good last year as the year before.

We still have a huge squad and it’s likely that lack of offers for our deadwood is slightly slowing down recruitment as Brands and co need to keep the wage bill in check. Need to shift the likes of Williams and Mirallas as well as possibly Schneiderlin (125k), Bolasie (75k) and Klaassen (70k) who are all on bigger wages than they can justify.

Centre back Clement Lenglet signed for Barcelona today and had a 300 million euro release clause slapped on him.

I think that might put him ahead of alleged Everton target Yeri Mina. Cue further tabloid speculation.

Now like many I thought it was only Premiership clubs who paid ridiculous amounts of money. But Juventus paying Real Madrid £108 million for Ronaldo, is just madness, but to prove they have gone completely mad they have given the 33 year old a 3 year contract of £26.5 million per year.

Brian... They'll make it back in merchandising. They're going to have to sell a lot of letters though.
