Everton want to sign Wilfried Zaha and will hold talks over a deal this week, Sky Sports News understands.
Zaha's preference remains a move to Arsenal, but Crystal Palace are refusing to sell Zaha to the Gunners unless their £80m valuation is met.
- Arsenal not giving up on Zaha deal
- Hodgson unaware of Zaha exit request
- Palace bid £8m for Everton's McCarthy
Arsenal have already had one bid of £40m rejected during the current transfer window.
The Eagles are under no pressure to let Zaha go as they have already sold Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United for £50m this summer.
Arsenal have not given up hope of signing the 26-year-old and are expected to make another bid this week, but will now face competition from Everton.
It is understood Ivory Coast international Zaha informed Palace of his desire to move on after returning from the Africa Cup of Nations.

Fantasy Football: Is Zaha your man?
Arsenal and Crystal Palace will both desperately want Wilfried Zaha in their starting line-ups come the opening weekend but you can select him in your side regardless by playing Sky Sports Fantasy Football. His price may have increased to £10.3m, but the 183 points he racked up last term is enough to justify that.
