Crystal Palace striker Wilfried Zaha join Chelsea, see the latest information here.
Crystal Palace could be prepared to sell talismanic winger
Wilfried Zaha for a discounted fee in the region of
£25-30m this summer, amid growing interest from
Ivory Coast international has emerged as a possible target
for Thomas Tuchel as the London giants weigh up their
options in attack amid interest in Ronaldo, Aubameyang,
Vardy, and other forwards around Europe.
Wilfried, for one, has spent most of his footballing career
at Crystal Palace, featuring in over 400 matches for the
club across two different spells, scoring 83 goals and
registering 73 assists along the way. Zaha had another
productive campaign for Patrick Vieira’s side last term,
netting 14 PL goals.
The 29-year-old forward has been linked with moves to
top PL teams, including Chelsea, in the past. But the
Ivorian attacker has stayed put every time, with a
disastrous spell with Man United remaining his only tryst
with a ‘Big Six’ club.
However, the Ivorian’s current contract at Selhurst Park
expires in 2023, which puts Crystal Palace in a tricky
position over his future. The African forward could leave
as a free agent at the end of the campaign, so the Eagles
could be open to recoup a fee for their prized winger if
they cannot get him to pen fresh terms with them.
Wilfried Zaha stays eager to prove his mettle at a top
team, and this could be his last chance to shine at the
Champions League-level club.
