£130k-a-week Premier League star ‘would welcome’ Stamford Bridge move

Chelsea target Wilfried Zaha would welcome a move to Stamford Bridge, according to transfer insider DeanJones.

The Ivory Coast international has been consistently away from Crystal Palace in recent years and is once again facing uncertainty over his future this summer.

What’s the latest news about Zaha?

It’s almost an annual occurrence that Zaha is linked with a move to a bigger club, although this window is sure to have every chance of finally happening.

That’s because the 29-year-old has entered the final 12 months of his £130,000-a-week contract and has shown few signs that he is likely to commit his future to his boyhood club.

As a result, Zaha is attracting interest from across Europe, with Jose Mourinho’s Roma keen on his services, as are Chelsea, despite the recent arrival of Raheem Sterling from Manchester City.

The Blues have been linked with several wingers this summer, although Sterling remains their only attacking addition, with Thomas Tuchel desperate for greater squad depth, with doubts on the future of Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.

And Jones reckons Zaha, who has never played in Europe, would relish the opportunity to join the 2021 Club World Cup winners and compete in the Champions League.

What did Jones say about Zaha?

He told GIVEMESPORT: “Chelsea tried to sign him under the previous owner and Zaha would welcome such a move.

“I think it would be exciting to see him and Sterling in the same attack, and I think there are ways for Tuchel to make that open up.”

Why does Chelsea want Zaha?

Despite not getting the big shot he possibly deserved since returning to Palace from Manchester United, Zaha has still proven himself as a consistent top performer at Premier League level.

He is coming off the best goalscoring season of his career, netting 14 top-flight goals, bettered only by eight players, and saw Palace claim a respectable 12th place under Patrick Vieira.

In total, Zaha has scored 61 goals and provided 41 assists in 277 Premier League appearances, underscoring his evident quality, especially playing for a team that never finished higher than 10th during his time at the club.

He has also scored over ten goals against the top six teams, proving he is capable of playing against the best and proving he would be a shrewd signing for Chelsea, especially for a discounted price given his situation. contractual.
