Chelsea in pole position to sign No.11 Ivory Coast international

Chelsea are leading the race to sign Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha and planning to make a bid in July when the transfer window opens again. London club need a prolific winger to strengthen the front-line and Ivory Coast international is the best option in this situation.

Sarri set to spend considerable money on the player during the summer transfer window. Man United, Arsenal, Liverpool and PSG are also keen to sign him and there will be a battle for the footballer. Wilfried joined the Eagles from the Red Devils in 2015 with a £4m deal.

He became a key figure for the club and scored many incredible goals since joining. In this season, Zaha played 36 matches, scored ten goals and provided ten assists in all competition. It is an impressive result and he can improve his consequences with world-class teammates.

The 26-year-old forward has contracted with the English club until 2022, and his release clause is nearly £45m. He is a regular member of the national team which is already a great success for the player. Probably Ivorian superstar will accept the correct offer from the Italian coach.

Blues will do everything to add him this summer as Pedro and Willian already up to 30, Eden Hazard joined Real Madrid, Callum Hudson-Odoi linked with several clubs and they need replacement.
