Clubs in England and Europe are monitoring Wilfried Zaha’s contract situation at Crystal Palace carefully as they prepare to make a bid for the winger this summer.
It is believed that the Ivorian international has turned down an offer of an improved deal of £125,000 a week, according to The Sun.
Zaha only signed his current contract 15 months ago, but Palace bosses are desperate to keep hold of their talisman.
However, Zaha is though to want to test himself again at a ‘big’ club, the Sun reports. He flopped after a £15 million move to Manchester United some years ago, being loaned out to Cardiff City after less than half a season at Old Trafford.
Since then he has rebuilt his reputation back at the club where he originally made his name, and was crucial last season as the side escaped relegation.
But his performances have inevitably attracted other clubs to him. Spurs may seem a logical option as he would stay in London, plus he would fit into their style of play.
Everton, rebuilding under Marco Silva, are also linked, as are German side Dortmund. The latter can offer Champions League football, which could be a pull if Spurs don’t come in with a bid.
That said, Palace bosses want to keep hold ofZaha and have put a £70 million price tag on his head. They are also thought to be thinking of upping their contract offer again to encourage him to stay.
