Chelsea and Arsenal are set to face competition from Manchester City for the signature of Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha in the January transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Premier League leaders are ready to “rival” the two London clubs in the race to sign the 25-year-old in the new year.

The same report claims that Zaha is valued at around £40m and that Manchester City are now among the clubs looking to try and sign the forward when the transfer window reopens.

Zaha has been in good form for Crystal Palace this season and has scored four goals in 12 Premier League appearances for the Eagles.

His good form has prompted plenty of Premier League interest in his services ahead of the January transfer window, according to the same report.

The same story reports that Tottenham were also pondering a move for Zaha before he signed a new five-year contract with Crystal Palace back in May.

It remains to be seen what will happen with the Ivory Coast international in the new year, but it seems that there is certainly no shortage of interest in his services from the Premier League.
