Zaha ready hand in transfer request to force Chelsea switch

Chelsea offer £30m plus £35m player to sign Tottenham's top target

Wilfried Zaha wants a big-money switch to Chelsea and has reportedly told Crystal Palace teammates he is determined to quit the club.

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.

After a fantastic 2017/18 season for Crystal Palace, Wilfried Zaha is a man in demand. The Belgian wing wizard has been a long-term target for European champions Real Madrid and had expressed his desire to secure a move to Spain post his exploits in the summer's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

Tottenham have long held an interest in the talented winger, while Chelsea have also emerged as a potential destination for the player.

Set to celebrate a move to Chelsea? He's very much an integral part of Crystal Palace.

Europe Braces Itself For What Could Be 'Hottest Day Ever' Today
The power plants use water from the rivers to cool down their reactors, before sending the water back into the rivers. Rivers that are unusually warm can experience mass fish die-offs, which has happened in Germany in the past week.

Nine goals in 29 Premier League games has seen the vultures circling for Zaha's signature, who only signed a new deal until 2022 last summer.

Palace had offered the Ivorian worldwide a new £125,000-a-week deal in a desperate attempt to keep hold of their Player of the Year, but it seems the bright lights of Stamford Bridge are too appealing for the 25-year-old.

Chelsea have made just two signings so far this summer, bringing in midfielder Jorginho from Napoli, which was followed by the acquisition of veteran goalkeeper Robert Green.

Williams and Kaikai will both be hoping to remain at Palace and avoid being sent out on loan before Thursday's 5pm transfer deadline.
