In 12 hours Crystal Palace boss Hodgson confident Zaha wants stay

Chelsea offer £30m plus £35m player to sign Tottenham's top target

The "Eagles" are desperate to hold on to their homegrown hero and are believed to have offered him a fresh contract worth in the region of £125,000 a week in order to tempt him to stay.

According to the Mirror, Zaha has rejected a new contract at Palace and is expected to hand in a transfer request to force a move to the Blues. Tottenham are also interested in the Ivory Coast global.

Speaking in May amid reported interest from Manchester City and Tottenham, Zaha indicated he would not push for a move from Palace, which he described as his "home". His improvement over the last three seasons has been so astounding that he is now considered to be among the best attacking players in the Premier League.

Tottenham have also been linked with Zaha, but are now trying to sign Aston Villa's Jack Grealish.

Set to celebrate a move to Chelsea?

Maurizio Sarri is due to sit down with Chelsea chiefs to discuss potential signings ahead of this week's transfer deadline and the Crystal Palace star will be top of the agenda.

There has certainly been more talk of outgoings at Chelsea this summer than incomings but with just a week until the transfer window closes, it looks as though the Blues will make a signing or two.

Hodgson, the veteran Crystal Palace chief, meanwhile, is confident about retaining Zaha for the upcoming term and shared what he discussed with the dynamic attacker recently.

The race to sign Zaha is getting increasingly unpredictable.

After a fantastic 2017/18 season for Crystal Palace, Wilfried Zaha is a man in demand.

The Mirror Sport is reporting that the Ivory Coast global has told his Palace teammates of his plans, and would be willing to submit a transfer request should the club continue to price him out of a move. An interesting next few days beckon.
