Chelsea could reportedly lodge an approach to sign Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace during this summer's transfer window.

The Ivorian was the subject of transfer offers from Arsenal and Everton last summer but neither of them were willing to meet the Eagles' £80m price tag.

At the turn of the year, the Ivorian was linked with a possible move to Stamford Bridge but manager Frank Lampard publicly stated that the club won't be making a bid for the attacker.

Despite this, the Blues have been regularly associated with the former Manchester United man and Evening Standard claims that the club could consider a swoop for the 27-year-old ahead of next season.

Zaha has been a consistent performer for the Eagles in recent years but he has contributed just three goals and three assists in 29 league appearances this season.

Still, he remains highly-rated by some of the Premier League's elite clubs and it will be interesting to see whether the Blues will make a formal offer for the player's services this summer.
