In-demand Wilfried Zaha set for Palace exit

In-demand Wilfried Zaha set for Palace exit

Ivory Coast and Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha is set to be the subject of bids from numerous clubs during the upcoming transfer window.

According to the Daily Mail, the 27-year-old winger has attracted interest from several clubs in Spain, England and Germany.

Atletico Madrid, Eveton, Bayern Munich and Newcastle United are reportedly expected to go in for over the next few weeks.

Zaha came very close to joining Arsenal last year with former Gunners boss Unai Emery having revealed that he was eager to sign the winger, before the North London club decided on signing Nicolas Pepe from Lille instead.

Palace are said to have demanded around £80 million for Zaha 12 months ago, but it remains to be seen what impact the coronavirus (COVID-19) will have on the club and if they’d be willing to sell their star asset at all.

Zaha, who is contracted to Palace until 2023, has 127 goal contributions in 360 matches for the Eagles.
