Chelsea suffer a huge transfer blow on Crystal Palace super star Wilfried zaha


CRYSTAL PALACE will hold talks with star man Wilfried Zaha over a new long-term contract. That is according to Palace manager Patrick Vieira, who is adamant Zaha, 29, won’t be leaving for free in June when his contract runs out. That would be a significant transfer blow for Arsen and Chelsea who have been keeping tabs on the winger for quite some time. Vieira said:


“Wilfried knows what the club think about him, and we know what he thinks about the club. “There will be discussions taking place [over a new contract] but for myself and for the club what is important is for him to play at this level and to be consistent and to help those young players around him to grow and we will see what will happen.


“If Wilfried Zaha has a good day, the team will hav a good day. “He’s an important player on and off the field, he’s got the experience and today he was really good in possession and out of possession he worked really hard.”


Arsenal, Chelsea as well as Roma were eyeing Zah during the summer transfer window. The 29-year-old has long held ambition to play in the Champions League after his disappointing stint with Manchester United almost a decade ago. The Gunners have been keeping tabs on the Ivory Coast international since 2019 when former manager Unai Emery considered him a priority before the club opted for record signing Nicolas Pepe.


While Chelsea are also looking to add some more firepower to Graham Potter’s faltering attack. Zaha has been enjoying a stunning campaign so fa with five goals and one assist in 10 Premier Leagu matches.
