Chelsea considers shock move for Ivorian Star

Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha is believed to be the subject of discussion at Stamford Bridge, as the Premier League champions consider launching a bid for the winger.

The Blues have been hit with injuries this term and manager Antonio Conte has been rather public with his wish to bolster with squad in the coming window, with many players already being targeted.

Latest reports from tabloids in the UK, now suggest that Chelsea are considering making a move for the Ivory Coast international.

Zaha has been in superb form ever since his return from an injury that kept him out for the start of the season, and his brilliant performances have helped Palace steer clear of the relegation zone for the time being.

The move, however, seems unlikely at the moment as the Eagles will not want to lose their star man in the midseason transfer window and so any move for the player will most likely be in the summer.

The former Manchester United man has also caught the attention of both Arsenal and Tothenham it is believed, and so Chelsea might yet face competition for the signature of the attacker.

The 25-year old has scored 4 goals in 12 Premier League appearances so far this season including the winner against Chelsea back in October, Palace’s first win of the season.
