Chelsea FC are to make a decision about whether to aggressively pursue Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that new Chelsea FC boss Maurizio Sarri is set to hold talks with the west London side about potential signings in the final week of the transfer window.

The same article states that the Ivory Coast international is open to a potential move to a top-six club ahead of the start of the 2018-19 Premier League campaign.

According to the same story, Palace haven’t received an offer that has come close to matching their asking price in the 2018 summer transfer window.

The Daily Mail adds that Chelsea FC have been unwilling to make an offer in excess of £30m to cast doubt on whether a deal is feasible ahead of the 9 August deadline.

Zaha scored nine times and has made three assists in 29 appearances in the Premier League in the 2017-18 season.

The Ivorian winger has also been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur on a regular basis in this summer’s transfer window.

Chelsea FC were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley last term.
