Palace plan bumper offer to keep Zaha

Crystal Palace are set to reward Wilfried Zaha with a bumper contract in order to fend off interest from Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The 24-year-old has been a key performer for the south London outfit, who avoided relegation with the 4-0 thrashing of Hull City, which, in turn, sent the Tigers down.

According to The Sun, the Eagles are planning to reward with the Ivorian with a new long-term deal with north London duo Arsenal and Spurs mulling over a £30m approach for the attacker.

Sam Allardyce is desperate to keep hold of his main man beyond the summer, and this has urged the Eagles' hierarchy to propose a substantial wage rise on his £35,000-a-week wages.

Zaha could earn up to £120,000-a-week in his new extension with Allardyce eager to build his squad around the forward in order to avoid another relegation battle next term.

The former Manchester United man has provided seven goals and nine assists in 34 league outings for Crystal Palace this season.
