Hodgson expects Zaha Palace stay despite Chelsea rumours

Hodgson expects Zaha Palace stay despite Chelsea rumours

Wilfried Zaha has told fellow Crystal Palace colleagues he is determined to quit the club and wants a big-money switch to Chelsea, according to the Mirror. One major club that has not made any signings so far are Tottenham Hotspur, the Premier League side has qualified to play in the Champions League in the following term but has not added any re-enforcements as of yet.

Everton turned to Watford wideman Richarlison instead, and now Zaha is up for a move across London, where he is settled.

The club that have seemingly shown the most interest in Zaha in the past few months is Chelsea, who could be looking to bolster their attacking ranks in the final days of the transfer window.

When asked about the youngster, the Italian manager said, "He will be a very, very strong player. I am not happy about the situation but I would like to talk to him.

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

Zaha is aware he can land a more financially-appealing contract at Chelsea, the Daily Mail claim. He's very much an integral part of Crystal Palace Football Club.

The former Manchester United attacker finished the previous campaign with nine goals and five assists from 29 league appearances and has been in fine nick during the Eagles' pre-season campaign.

But the official confirmation of a transfer has been delayed by Torreira's worldwide involvement with Uruguay in western Europe. Torreira was waiting for the World Cup to conclude, but with Uruguay now out he is free to make his move to London.

The Eagles are under little pressure to sell after tying Zaha to a long-term deal in 2017 worth £100,000 per week, but the Ivory Coast global made his intentions clear by rejecting improved terms earlier this summer.

Williams and Kaikai will both be hoping to remain at Palace and avoid being sent out on loan before Thursday's 5pm transfer deadline.
