Chelsea considering Zaha move

Chelsea are considering making a summer move for Wilfried Zaha.

The future of the Ivory Coast international at his current club Crystal Palace is uncertain.

He is out of contract at the end of the season and, although he has been offered a new deal, which would make him the highest paid player in the history of the club, he has yet to put pen to paper.

In coming manager Mauricio Pochettino is a long standing admirer of Zaha from his Tottenham days, and the ability to sign a player of Zaha’s quality on a free transfer has its attractions, given the West London club’s struggle with FFP (Financial Fair Play) rules.

Critics, though, may point out that the club already has an abundance of wide players – Mykhailo Mudryk, Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech, and Noni Madueke, and adding another to the mix without getting rid of several does not seem logical from a squad building point of view.
