  • Chelsea offer £30m plus £35m player to sign Tottenham's top target

Wilfried Zaha is reportedly eyeing up a move to Chelsea before the transfer window closes and has informed his team-mates of his decision.

The Sun is reporting that Chelsea FC are eager to sign the Ivory Coast global to bolster their wing options ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

Zaha informed the club he wants to leave, but Palace have replied only a massive offer will convince them to sell.

Palace have offered Zaha a new deal worth £125,000-a-week after he scored nine goals and provided three assists last term, despite missing five weeks of the season through injury.

In today's day and age, £26.7 million for a player with Gray's ability represents excellent value for money, and Tottenham might just be better served in moving for the Leicester ace, rather than Zaha or Martial.

If Willian indeed ends up parting ways with Chelsea this summer, Pedro will be the only recognised winger at Maurizio Sarri's disposal in addition to Hazard.

Mauricio Pochettino is yet to make a single signing this window but the Spurs boss is expected to be active over the coming days and it seems he's keen to strengthen his attack with Zaha firmly on his radar.

With Chelsea preparing a bid of around £30 million for Zaha, Spurs are set to offer Palace a fee of £45 million to bring him to North London. With the player not forcing a move away from Selhurst Park, Crystal Palace would fancy keeping hold of the former Manchester United man.
