Wilfried Zaha

Europa League winners Chelsea are reportedly keen to sign Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha during the January transfer market which opens again in the next few weeks.

According to The Independent, Chelsea want to sign the in-form Zaha if their transfer ban is overturned at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

Chelsea are in the midst of a two-window transfer ban imposed on them by world football’s governing body FIFA due to their culpability in the signing of underage players.

The Blues had earlier made an appeal to FIFA over the transfer ban and it was thrown out thereby prompting them to take the matter to CAS.

Chelsea were unable to sign players in the summer as they served the first part of the punishment.

They will serve the second part of the punishment in the January transfer window if the ban is not overturned.

Wilfried Zaha was a transfer target for both Everton and Arsenal in the summer but the two clubs were unable to produce the £80m transfer fee ended to sign him.

Recent reports claimed that Crystal Palace have slammed a £70m asking price on him ahead of January transfer window.

Zaha has scored two goals in the last three games for Crystal Palace.
