Hodgson believes star player will stay despite Chelsea and Spurs interest

Hodgson believes star player will stay despite Chelsea and Spurs interest

Wilfried Zaha wants a big-money switch to Chelsea and has reportedly told Crystal Palace teammates he is determined to quit the club.

The 25-year-old Zaha had been a target for both the London clubs heading into the final week of the summer transfer window.

An attacker is on the agenda for the Chelsea boss as Willian appears to be pushing for a move away from west London and Zaha could be viewed as the ideal replacement for the Brazilian global.

Bolasie moved to Everton from Palace for £25m in 2016, but there's a chance he could return to Selhurst Park ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline, and Eagles boss Roy Hodgson is weighing up a move for the tricky winger.

Do you think Zaha would be a good signing for Chelsea?

As a result, the Ivory Coast worldwide has attracted interest from the likes of Chelsea, Borussia Dortmund and the Red Devils.

According to the Daily Mail, a potential swoop for Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha will be at the top of the agenda.

Palace have offered Zaha a new deal worth £125,000-a-week after he scored nine goals and provided three assists last term, despite missing five weeks of the season through injury.

The Ivory Coast worldwide only penned a five-year contract with Palace last summer, but it has been suggested that the player is keen to secure a transfer to Chelsea.

Chelsea have made just two signings so far this summer, bringing in midfielder Jorginho from Napoli, which was followed by the acquisition of veteran goalkeeper Robert Green.
