Wilfried Zaha

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has made a change of agent in a bid to secure a big transfer away from his South London club.

The change of agent was confirmed by Sky Sports who revealed that he has hired tough Israeli agent and negotiator Pini Zahavi to get him a move to one of the big six clubs (Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal etc) in England.

Pini Zahavi has replaced his long-term agent Will Salthouse.

Zaha revealed his desire to leave Crystal Palace last summer but he was unable to achieve this target mainly due to the high transfer fee slapped on him by the Eagles hierarchy led by club chairman Steve Parish.

The Ivorian international revealed that he supported Arsenal as a young boy and the Gunners were one of two clubs who made a move to sign him during last summer’s transfer market.

Arsenal made a one-time bid of £40m in a bid to sign him only for Crystal Palace to demand at least double of that amount.

The Gunners went on to sign his country man Nicholas Pepe from Lille in France for a fee believed to be around £72m.

Everton also tried to sign him but their many bids were turned down by Palace.
