Report: Crystal Palace consider Everton winger Ademola Lookman as potential Wilfried Zaha replacement

Ademola Lookman has been used sparingly this season.

Everton starlet Ademola Lookman is a player who could be on Crystal Palace’s wishlist if Wilfried Zaha departs, according to The Daily Mail.

Crystal Palace want to keep Zaha but they have drawn up a two-man wishlist should they receive an £80m offer for their star winger.

As well as Lookman, the Eagles are also interested in Aston Villa star Jack Grealish, 23, who is spearheading his hometown club’s promotion bid.

Lookman has been a long-term target for Crystal Palace and they could rekindle their interest in him if Zaha leaves.

But Crystal Palace could offer the ex-Charlton Athletic winger a clear route to the first-team and that could be a tempting offer.

 

Lookman joined Everton from the Addicks in January 2017 and has since scored four times in just shy of 50 games.

The England under-21 starlet joined Red Bull Leipzig last season, scoring five times in 11 games, but he has failed to make a full breakthrough this term.

With 21 games, one goal and two assists under his belt this season, Lookman will be frustrated by his lack of starts.

The speedy and skilful young winger could either bide his time at Goodison Park or move to Crystal Palace in the summer.
