Chelsea, Arsenal join pursuit of Crystal Palace winger


Wilfried Zaha news

London trio plot Zaha swoop

Premier League duo Chelsea and Arsenal have joined Tottenham Hotspur in the pursuit of in-form Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha.

The 24-year-old has been the standout performer for the Eagles during the ongoing campaign, and his tally of six goals and seven assists have helped his side move four points clear of the drop zone.

Zaha turned out to produce his best performance of the season this weekend as his goal and assist, combined with some committed defending from Mamadou Sakho aided Palace to a surprise 2-1 win over runaway leaders Chelsea.

According to The Guardian, the player's showing has not gone unnoticed with Chelsea and Arsenal having joined the chase for his signature.

London rivals Tottenham Hotspur had failed with a £15m approach for Zaha last year, and they will once again retain their interest in the coming transfer window.

Sam Allardyce's side are for now focused on their survival in the top flight, but they are prepared to reward Zaha with an improved contract once the season comes to a close.

Zaha, who is currently on a £35,000 weekly package, will be offered a triple rise on his wages in order to stay put at Selhurst Park next season.
