Wilfried Zaha Keen On Big-Money Move Away From Crystal Palace This Summer As Borussia Dortmund And Everton Continue Chase For £60m-Rated Winger

Wilfried Zaha is eyeing a big move away from Crystal Palace this summer, with Everton and Borussia Dortmund keen to sign the talented winger.

Palace are desperate to keep their star man and will demand upwards of £60million, given he has a further four years to run on his current contract.

Tottenham are not one of the clubs interested in signing the Ivory Coast international, having baulked at the asking price.

The Eagles remain in a strong position heading into any negotiations after they extended Zaha’s contract last summer to take him through until June 2022.

Everton and Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund are currently the two frontrunners for the 25-year-old’s signature, but it is as yet unclear whether he would accept a move that far from his south London home.

The Ivorian star has already left Palace on one previous occasion, when he signed for Manchester United before returning to Selhurst Park just a year later.

He failed to settle at Old Trafford and was offered a return to his boyhood side, first on loan before sealing a permanent transfer in 2015.

Since returning for a second spell, he has made a further 144 appearances for the Eagles, taking his overall tally to a huge 287 in the red and blue of Palace.

Roy Hodgson has already stated his intentions for Zaha this season at a recent press conference during the club’s pre-season tour of Scandinavia.

He said: ‘What people seem to forget with Wilf is he has got a four-year contract.

‘There is speculation every year around Messi and Ronaldo too. He is our player for the next four years and the club has got no interest or desire to sell him.’
