Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha has been linked with a summer move to Chelsea as well as a host of other top six Premier League clubs.

Zaha, has been fundamental in seeing the Eagles stay in the English top-flight for next season, scoring eight league goals, one of those strikes coming against Chelsea in the 2-1 defeat at Selhurst Park in October.

According to the Mirror, the Blues as well as Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool are all monitoring the Ivorian’s situation.

Wilfried Zaha has been crucial for Crystal Palace surviving relegation from the Premier League.

The 25-year-old still has years ahead of him as he’s firmly established himself as a top-level player despite a frustrating spell at Manchester United.

The competitive interest in Zaha is likely to see Palace’s asking price rise to an astronomic fee in a bid to fend off pursuers in keeping their most prized star.

Zaha’s current deal at the South-London side expires in 2022, so Chelsea may have to look for other alternatives if the player’s value isn’t within our budget.
