Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes that Chelsea FC should move to sign Crystal Palace duo Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Wilfried Zaha this summer.

The west London side are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as they consider bolstering their squad ahead of next season.

However, Chelsea FC’s ability to sign new players this summer may be hampered by their impending Fifa transfer ban, which would apply for the next two transfer windows.

Nevertheless, the Blues are still likely to be planning their recruitment drive this summer, and Chelsea FC legend Hasselbaink believes that the Blues would be wise to target two stars from Crystal Palace.

Speaking in an interview with us-bookies.com, Hasselbaink said: “If Chelsea don’t have a transfer ban, I think they’ll target two Crystal Palace players.

“Firstly, Aaron Wan-Bissaka can push Cesar Azpilicueta for a starting place and will learn a lot from him. He’s a very good right back, and can defend very well.

“And then Wilfried Zaha brings the excitement. If Eden Hazard goes, you need somebody to take players on.

“Yes, they have Calum Hudson-Odoi but any good side needs four wide players, especially if something happens to Pedro or Willian.

“I think it will be difficult for Crystal Palace to keep them, with all due respect. If they’re going to go, I think it’s best for them to stay in London.

“Yes, Wilfried Zaha had a difficult move to Man United that didn’t work out so I think it’d be good for him to stay in London.”

The 26-year-old Zaha scored 10 goals and made five assists in 34 Premier League games for Crystal Palace this season, while 21-year-old Wan-Bissaka made three assists in 35 top-flight games.

Chelsea FC finished in third place in the Premier League table under Maurizio Sarri this season.

The Blues will take on Arsenal in the Europa League final in Baku next Wednesday night as they look to end Sarri’s first campaign in charge with a trophy.
