The summer transfer window is fast approaching and the battle for Wilfried Zaha is heating up. The Crystal Palace winger is one of the most sought-after players in the Premier League and two of the biggest clubs in England, Arsenal and Chelsea, are set to fight it out for his signature.
Zaha has been a key player for Palace since joining the club in 2013, and has been a consistent performer in the Premier League. He has scored nine goals and provided five assists in the league this season, and his performances have attracted the attention of some of the biggest clubs in Europe.
Arsenal and Chelsea are both keen to sign the Ivory Coast international, and both clubs have been linked with a move for him in recent weeks. Arsenal are reportedly willing to offer a free transfer for Zaha, while Chelsea are said to be willing to pay a fee for the player.
The two clubs have been in contact with Palace over a potential deal, and it is believed that the Eagles are willing to let Zaha leave if the right offer is made. Palace are reportedly looking for a fee of around £30 million for the player, but it is thought that Arsenal and Chelsea are both willing to pay that amount.
The battle for Zaha is likely to be a long and drawn-out affair, and it remains to be seen which club will eventually win the race for his signature. Both Arsenal and Chelsea have the financial resources to make a move for the player, and it is likely that the two clubs will go head-to-head in the coming weeks.
Whichever club does manage to sign Zaha will be getting a top-class player, and one who could make a huge difference to their team. The 26-year-old is one of the most exciting players in the Premier League, and his arrival at either Arsenal or Chelsea would be a major coup for either club.
The battle for Zaha is set to be one of the most intriguing transfer sagas of the summer, and it will be fascinating to see which club eventually wins the race for his signature.
