Everton round-up: Zaha a target, Stekelenburg wanted and Mampala tied down

All the latest news and gossip from Everton.

Zaha targeted

Everton are again being linked with a move for Wilfried Zaha, after the Ivory Coast international rejected a new deal at Crystal Palace earlier this week.

The Daily Mail report that Everton are in the hunt to sign the player, who is valued at £70 million by his club.

They are not alone, with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Borussia Dortmund also keen.

Everton could even sell his old pal Yannick Bolasie in order to fund his potential Goodison Park switch.

Stekelenburg targeted

Everton goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg is being linked with a move to France, as Ligue 1 side Lille consider a move for his services.

 

A report from France Football is suggesting that the French side want competition for current number one Mike Maignan and the Dutch stopper has been targeted.

The experienced goalie spent much of last season injured but it will remain to be seen if Everton will let him go, with Joel Robles already on his way out of the club.

Mampala deal

Everton have handed a first professional contract to 17-year-old Manasse Mampala after an impressive 2017-18 with the under-18s.

The striker has been handed the deal as David Unsworth sees him as a vital part of the under-23 set-up for next season.

The attacker scored 11 goals and claimed six assists in just 18 games for the Everton teenagers last season and looks a top prospect for the future at Goodison Park.
