ARSENAL and Everton are locked together in the race to sign Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha.
That's according to bookmakers Betfair, who've installed the pair as 4/1 joint-favourites to secure his signature during the upcoming transfer window.
The Premier League duo were both tipped to sign Zaha during the summer of 2019.
The Gunners opted for his Ivory Coast team-mate Nicolas Pepe instead, while the Toffees baulked at his £70million valuation.
But according to 90min – the race is back underway.
They claim Mikel Arteta and Co. are plotting a fresh raid on their London neighbours this summer after seeing Zaha's upturn in form.
The 28-year-old has scored nine goals and provided two assists in 22 Premier League appearances – that accounts for 28% of Palace's top-flight goals this term.
However, the report claims Arsenal will have to offload players including Alexandre Lacazette to fund any potential offer.

West Ham follow the leading pair at odds of 11/2 with Chelsea further behind at 10/1.
A shock return to Old Trafford with Manchester United is available at 16/1 with Mauricio Pochettino's Paris Saint-Germain the outsiders at 20s.
Zaha has repeatedly hinted at his desire to leave Selhurst Park and told the FT Business of Football Summit in February that he wants to win silverware.
He said: "I have always wanted to play at the top level and win trophies and have the opportunity to show the medals to my kids and say ‘daddy’s won this and that’.
"So I will always give my 100 per cent to the club but I’m ambitious and if there are opportunities I will have a look at them."
