Borussia Dortmund will use the money from Andriy Yarmolenko’s transfer to West Ham to help fund a move for Wilfried Zaha.
Zaha has been linked with a move away from Crystal Palace and Dortmund will look to swoop for the winger.
The Ivory Coast international turned down a £125,000-a-week contract at Selhurst Park.
It is understood he is keen to prove himself at a big club again following his difficult stint at Manchester United between 2013 and 2015.
And with Borussia Dortmund set to sell winger Yarmolenko to West Ham for £17.5million this transfer window, Zaha could be a suitable replacement for the German outfit.
Of course, the fee received from the Hammers would not cover the entire cost of Zaha, who Palace have stamped a £70m price tag on.
Zaha was named Crystal Palace Player of the Year for the third year in a row at the end of last season and would be difficult to replace in South London.
This is despite the fact that Palace are expected to shatter their record transfer sale, which currently stands at £25m following Yannick Bolasie’s move to Everton in 2016.
Roy Hodgson will need to make signings soon with Yohan Cabaye and Bakary Sako already leaving the club this summer as the Eagles will be desperate to avoid a repeat of last season’s Premier League start.
