Chelsea are reportedly one step closer to complete signing Premier League club’s high-rated winger this summer
According to reports, the West Londoners & the player have reached an agreement on personal terms as Thomas Tuchel scours the market for more attacking reinforcements.
Chelsea owner, Todd Boehly is reported to be also keen on adding another forward player to the squad this summer after Romelu Lukaku & Timo Werner opted for a move away from Stamford Bridge.
The London based outfit are still yet to submit an official bid, but a concrete offer is expected in the coming days, while the Ivorian forward on the other hand is also pushing for a move from Patrick Vieira’s Palace.
The Ex-Manchester United winger has been linked with big moves to Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal in the past, but has opted to stay back at Selhurst Park.
The 29-year-old doesn’t have much time left to join a club bigger than Palace and play in the Europe Elite Competition because the highly-rated attacker is getting close to 30.
As per fresh reports, financial terms have now been sorted between Zaha and the Blues
It would not make much sense to add another winger to the squad, the team currently lacks a natural no.9, though, they have an option in Armando Broja who impressed while on loan with Southampton last season, but a striker should be Tuchel top priority.
