Wilfried Zaha REJECTS new contract as he looks to force switch

Grant SmithAug 06, 2018

Shockingly though, Zaha has told his teammates that there is "an offer for him to leave Selhurst Park", which reads as a major blow to Palace supporters.

Tottenham have pulled out of the race for Wilfried Zaha after Crystal Palace demanded £75million for the winger.

A former Manchester United attacker reportedly has his heart set on joining Chelsea in this transfer window.

Chelsea also have their eye on Zaha and the Blues want to force their way back into the Premier League's top four next season.

It is thought that Chelsea want to sign Zaha as a pre-emptive replacement for Eden Hazard, who is keen on a move to Real Madrid.

The story is suggesting that Spurs are not willing to pay the £75m price tag for the pacey winger which leaves Chelsea with a clear pathway to sign one of the most talked about players of this window.

"I spoke to Wilf yesterday and he certainly gave me no indication it was true about wanting to quit the club".

'In fact, we were talking about how good the new signings were and how they would help us.

Despite reports to the contrary, Tottenham have not registered an interest in Zaha so far this summer, with Mauricio Pochettino instead focusing his efforts and limited resources on Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish. His improvement over the last three seasons has been so astounding that he is now considered to be among the best attacking players in the Premier League. He's not only played out wide, but Roy has used him through the middle successfully.

"So I think that, as much as I don't like to say it to the Crystal Palace fans who I love, it probably is time for Wilfried to move on and get that next challenge under his belt".
