Chelsea plan summer move to land £70million-rated Wilfried Zaha

Chelsea are interested in a summer move for Wilfried Zaha, according to the Telegraph (h/t Express).

The Ivorian was linked with an exit in the previous window with Arsenal and Everton keen on him (h/t Express).

Neither side was willing to match the £70million valuation, and Zaha remained at Crystal Palace (h/t Express).

Frank Lampard wants to sign Zaha in the summer but the Blues currently face a two-window ban for breaking regulations.

The Blues are to appeal the ruling and are confident of overturning the decision, according to the report.

Zaha struggling at Palace

The Ivorian was one reason why Palace stayed in the Premier League last year, but he hasn’t been at his best this season.

Zaha only has two goals and one assist for the London club. However, both his strikes have come in his last two games.

The 27-year-old is still an excellent player and it will be interesting to see when we make a move for him.

Lampard couldn’t make any additions to the team in the summer and has done a great job with the players at hand.

Zaha would provide cover and competition for the attacking spots and it would be difficult to find someone of his quality on the cheap.

Chelsea have lost their last two games and are just six points ahead of Tottenham in the race for the top four.

This is another test of Lampard’s abilities and we need to get back to winning ways soon.
