Chelsea told they are free to sign £50M Premier League star ‘he’s moving on’
CHELSEA are set to fight it out for the free transfer of Crystal Palace ace Wilfried Zaha, according to reports.
Regarded as one of the most dangerous wingers in the Premier League – Zaha has been tipped to leave Crystal Palace for many seasons now – but his asking price has been way too high.
However – with his current deal finishing at the end of the current season – Chelsea have once again been linked with a move for the attacker – as Graham Potter wants to add a bit more depth to the squad
Zaha scored 14 league goals last season and has continued his impressive form this term, hitting the back of the net five times – and many feels the 29-year-old would strengthen most top-six teams but especially CHELSEA
The 30-year-old looks set to end his second spell at Selhurst Park this summer when his contract expires – and the likes of Chelsea are ready to make a move for the player – talkSPORT journalist Alex Crook said:
“It certainly seems that Wilf Zaha’s stellar career at Crystal Palace could be coming to an end.
“His contract is up at the end of the season – no imminent sign that he is willing to extend.
“And if he is to go and achieve his ambitions of playing for a top club, it’s now or never really isn’t it?
“When you look at his age, the fact that he’s available as a free agent, he either commits his future to Crystal Palace and then probably sees out his top-flight career there.
“Or he goes off and tests himself, I think there will be suitors, I know Mikel Arteta is a fan, I know that Chelsea have certainly taken a look at him in the past as well.”
Look – Zaha is a player that CHELSEA should have signed a couple of transfer windows – they made a mistake not signing him
