Danny Mills has claimed that Crystal Palace are likely to reject a £60million bid from Everton for Wilfried Zaha this summer. 

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Leeds and England defender says that the Toffees should not be looking much higher than the £50million spent on the capture of Richarlison if they are to pounce for the Ivory Coast international.

It has been reported that the Merseyside outfit want Zaha to join them this summer and have made an approach to the Eagles suggesting they will pay £60million-plus-a-player for his services.

However, while stating that Everton have been accurate with their reported valuation of the Palace man, Mills does not believe the London club will accept such an offer.

Mills told Football Insider: “At the right price though, I don’t think they can be heading north of what they paid for Richarlison, £50million. £60million would be about right, that’s the reported price, not sure Palace would accept that.

“How much higher do you go beyond that? It will be interesting. He’s a very, very good player, he’s not unlike Richarlison, is he?”

Zaha played 34 times for Palace last season and scored 10 goals, while he also turned provider for his teammates with another 10 assists.

He has 177 top-flight appearances, 32 goals and 34 assists under his belt during both his time at Selhurst Park and Manchester United.
