The Crystal Palace winger has lit up the Premier League with his performances in recent times and looks like he could be an ideal signing in a problem position for Chelsea.

Zaha’s skill, trickery and eye for goal could make him an ideal replacement for Eden Hazard, and James Olley told the Evening Standard in a question-and-answer session that he suspects this deal could still be possible for the Blues.

However, he says Palace would likely have an asking price of around £80million for Zaha, which would probably need to be lowered for Chelsea to consider stepping up their interest.

Blues fans will surely be hoping a deal for Zaha can come to something, with Sport suggesting a move for Jadon Sancho looks unlikely, and that Philippe Coutinho could be an alternative.

While Coutinho is a big name, he’s flopped at Barcelona and may Chelsea supporters would surely see Zaha as the superior option if they cannot get Sancho.
