In an effort to strengthen their attack before the transfer window closes, Chelsea is thinking about signing Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha.
The Blues are eager to expand their attacking options after only signing Raheem Sterling from Premier League champions Manchester City earlier in the summer.
Having missed out of signing Raphinha, Chelsea are looking for a central striker as the club are doing their homework on Ivory Coast international Zaha.
Zaha’s current contract at Selhurst Park expires in 12 months, and sources close to the player have indicated that he would like to play in the Champions League, something he missed out on during his brief stint at Manchester United nine years ago.
The 29-year-old may now have the opportunity with a move across London, and it is believed that co-owner Todd Boehly has him on his list of potential candidates. Boehly is eager to give Thomas Tuchel all the options necessary to mount a title challenge.
Palace had been willing to negotiate a new contract with Zaha, who is currently their highest-paid player, but they now realise that this summer is their last opportunity to capitalise on their rising star.
