Chelsea to swoop for Premier League attacker?

Zaha on Chelsea radar

Chelsea could reportedly make a January attempt to sign Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, should they manage to win their appeal against the transfer ban.

Blues boss Frank Lampard has recently welcomed the prospect of making mid-season signings but the same could hinge on the outcome of their hearing at the Court of Arbitration for Sport on November 20.

Suppose the embargo is lifted, The Express claims that the club could accelerate their pursuit of Zaha, who was previously on their transfer wishlist prior to the announcement of the ban.

Both Willian and Pedro are facing uncertain futures with their contracts expiring next summer and it is understood that Frank Lampard may look into the future by purchasing younger recruits.

Zaha, 26, has been one of the league's consistent performers from the wide attacking position and reports claims that he is still eager to secure a big-club move after his failed transfers to Arsenal and Everton last summer.
