Chelsea are said to be in pole position to sign Crystal Palace star winger Wilfred Zaha this summer, despite interest from top Premier League rivals including Manchester, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
The Blues were earlier boosted in their chase for the Ivorian’s signature when reports claimed that he wants to move to Stamford Bridge ahead of other suitors
According to Sky Sport last Thursday, Zaha has rejected a new offer from the Eagles while he equally turned down the chance to move to Old Trafford considering the way he was treated by Alex Ferguson during his first spell with the Red Devils.
However, the Blues have been boosted once again as the Sunday Mirror are suggesting that their arch-rival Tottenham have pulled out of the race for his signature.
The British media report earlier today stated that the North London club have cooled their interest in the former England international, who made his international debut for the Elephant of Ivory coast.
Mauricio Pochettino seems to have turned back from his decision to pursue Zaha’s services this summer due to Palace determination to hold on to the player beyond this summer.
Despite this report, Chelsea fans might need to wait a bit before they see the player in their squad, this is because the Selhurst Park outfits are not willing to let him go ahead of next season.
