I laughed: Pundit shocks Everton and Fulham's interest in the 21m ace ...

Everton and Crystal Palace want Zaidu Sanusi, according to a former Sporting Lisbon advisor.

In 2018-19, the talented left-back was plying his trade for a Mirandela SC side, who finished sixth in the third-tier of Portuguese football.

Zaidu scored a stunning goal that earned Porto the Primeira Liga title, netting a stunning winner in a 1-0 victory over Benfica, who had been battling for 3.6 million in the summer of 2020.

According to what I heard before going to the studio, FC Porto would have refused a 25 million euro offer (21 million, for Zaidu), according to Barreiro. I laughed when I heard that.

Zaidu played for Mirandela in 2018 but he was not an elite player. He even played for Gil Vicente on loan, but nobody looked into him. (In the end) Santa Clara went to get him.

Porto might be rewarded for their faith in the late-blooming Nigerian. A host of Premier League clubs are reportedly willing to put together an eight-figure sum.

Everton and Crystal Palace are interested in winning both sides, according to O Jogo. It remains to be seen if any of the aforementioned quartet can succeed in the failed West Ham situation. The London giants saw a deadline-day move for Zaidu to collapse 12 months ago.

At the time, we received the message that the coach (Sergio Conceicao) wanted him to stay. It was unusual as we assumed he had one foot out of the club.

Toni Martinez, a porto team-mate, is one of a number of talented left-siders linked with Fulham''s newly promoted goal. Real Betis Alex Moreno has apparently cooled their interest in Juventus and Javi Galan, though.
