Chelsea's London Rivals Set To Hijack This Premier League Superstar

Chelsea's London Rivals Set To Hijack This Premier League Superstar

Which players are Chelsea most likely to sell and sign this summer, according to 888sport?

But, with Palace demanding a steep fee of £75 million for their prized asset, the North Londoners are believed to have called off their pursuit of the winger, leaving Chelsea as the clear favourites to sign him.

"But, as I say, he is contracted to us and he is our player and we have every intention of him continuing to be our player, at least while his contract with us". The Belgian wing wizard has been a long-term target for European champions Real Madrid and had expressed his desire to secure a move to Spain post his exploits in the summer's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

Set to celebrate a move to Chelsea?

The Blues have also been linked with Manchester United's Anthony Martial due to uncertainty over the futures of wingers Eden Hazard and Willian.

Mauricio Pochettino is yet to make a single signing this summer but the Tottenham boss is expected to be busy over the coming days trying to strengthen his squad and Zaha was among the players on his radar.




Roy Hodgson has given Zaha as free a role as he can permit the player, without whom the club did not win a single point in their Premier League campaign last season.

The Ivory Coast worldwide was key in Palace avoiding relegation from the Premier League last season as his electric displays terrified defences and delighted Palace fans in equal measure.

The Eagles are not keen to lose Zaha this summer and have already offered him a new £125,000-a-week deal, in a bid to keep him at Selhurst Park.

Maurizio Sarri has snapped up midfielder Jorginho and third-choice goalkeeper Rob Green since replacing Antonio Conte in the Stamford Bridge hot seat but he too is expected to be active during the final stages of the window.

Chelsea line-up against Manchester City on Sunday afternoon in the Community Shield, with Sarri looking for immediate silverware to begin his spell at the Blues.
