Chelsea FC could hijack Arsenal’s bid for Wilfried Zaha – report
Chelsea FC and Everton are both tracking Arsenal target Wilfried Zaha, according to a report
Chelsea FC are weighing up an offer for long-term Arsenal target Wilfried Zaha, according to a report in England.
The Telegraph is reporting that the Blues are considering a potential swoop to sign the Ivory Coast international once the west London side have served their transfer ban.
The same article states that the Europa League winners may be banned from signing new players until next summer, although Chelsea FC are appealing Fifa’s decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
According to the same story, Crystal Palace could be open to selling to Chelsea FC next summer, which would allow the Eagles to retain Zaha’s services this season.
The Daily Telegraph are claiming that Everton have informed Palace that they’ll pay £60m for Zaha as well as include Turkish striker Cenk Tosun in the deal.
The report goes on to reveal that Zaha would prefer a move to Arsenal or Chelsea FC but the Gunners have only offered £40m for the winger this summer.
Chelsea FC have added Borussia Dortmund playmaker Christian Pulisic and Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic to their squad after deals were in place ahead of the summer transfer window.
The Blues appointed Frank Lampard as their new manager earlier this month after Maurizio Sarri left to take over the reins at Juventus.
