Chelsea linked with move for Crystal Palace star

Chelsea have been linked with a move for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha next summer.

The 25-year old has been instrumental in helping Palace’s revival from their disastrous start to the season under new manager Roy Hodgson, and was on target on Saturday as the South London side racked up an impressive three-nil victory away to Leicester City. He also made a telling contribution when Palace defeated Chelsea at Selhurst Park earlier in the campaign.

Now it looks like the Stamford Bridge club want to woo the Ivory Coast international across London next summer, although they may face competition from Tottenham and Arsenal.

Zaha is currently in his second spell at Palace, having played for the club between 2010 and 2013. A big money move to Manchester United then followed, but the player failed to make an impression at Old Trafford, and made just 2 Premier League appearances for them. He was sent on loan back to Palace, and then Cardiff City, before eventually joining the Eagles again for the second time on a permanent basis nearly 3 years ago.
