Chelsea have reportedly made contact with the representative of Wilfried Zaha regarding a potential move to Stamford Bridge next summer.

The Ivorian was keen on parting ways with Crystal Palace last summer but chairman Steve Parish blocked his £70m move to Everton on deadline day.

Zaha is still said to be determined to pursue a bigger move elsewhere and reports have recently claimed that Chelsea could be the next destination for the former Manchester United man.

According to The Independent, agent Federico Pastorello has made contact with Blues' director of football Marina Granovskaia about a potential transfer for his client.

The Blues are currently banned from signing any players until the summer of 2020 but they have been fancied to win their appeal such that they can pursue new players next month.

Still, the Eagles are unlikely to consider the sale of Zaha at the midway stage of the season and they are expected to wait until the summer to decide on his future.
