Wilfried Zaha ‘wants Chelsea move’ and could force transfer

Mark Kerton  PA Wire Chelsea are supposedly keen to sign Zaha

Palace had attempted to tie their prized asset to a new long-term contract on improved terms, but Zaha has rejected it in favour of moving away from Selhurst Park, snubbing Everton in the process.

The Ivory Coast global is adored by fans at Selhurst Park having played nearly 150 games for the club in two stints in south London. His improvement over the last three seasons has been so astounding that he is now considered to be among the best attacking players in the Premier League.

Zaha could have been seen as a direct replacement for Willian, the Brazil worldwide has been heavily linked with a departure from Chelsea this summer.

He clarified that it had nothing to do with football, but didn't rule out the possibility that he could be on the move before the transfer window closes on August 9.

According to the Sun, Chelsea were front-runners for Zaha as they would probably need a replacement for either Willian or Eden Hazard if the iconic duo leaves Stamford Bridge this season.

At the same time, he does a racist Asian impression after being told to imitate a Chinese tourist in a simulation scenario. Spencer then repeatedly chases Baron Cohen around buttocks-first, with his pants around his ankles.

The report believes that Chelsea is the destination that the 25-year-old prefers, and he has allegedly told his teammates the same.

Tottenham have long held an interest in the talented winger, while Chelsea have also emerged as a potential destination for the player.

Crystal Palace are reluctant to sell their star man so close to the deadline, however, and value Zaha at around £70million.

Palace will not sell the Ivory Coast worldwide unless they are offered a huge sum to sell him for a second time in his career.
