Crystal Palace: Eagles want at least £25million for Wilfried Zaha

Crystal Palace: Eagles want at least £25million for Wilfried Zaha -Crystal Palace News

Crystal Palace want ‘somewhere between 25 and 30 million’ if they’re to sell Wilfried Zaha this summer, according to journalist Dean Jones.

The lowdown

Zaha is into the final year of his contract at Selhurst Park and The Athletic’s Matt Woosnam says they have ‘no intention’ of allowing him to leave on a free transfer.

That, of course, means they will have to tie him down to a new contract in the next 12 months, or sell him in one of the next two transfer windows.

Chelsea are interested in Zaha, and manager Thomas Tuchel is thought to be keen on the idea of moving for the Ivorian before 1 September.

Intriguingly, Palace themselves are targeting two of the Blues’ assets.

According to 90Min, they remain keen to bring back Conor Gallagher following his loan spell last season, and are also ‘in the hunt’ for Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The latest

Jones says Hudson-Odoi and Gallagher are unlikely to be used as part of any deal for Zaha and set out Palace’s demands for the 29-year-old.

“I think it [Hudson-Odoi and Gallagher] would be separate from an actual bid for Zaha because Palace would want a cash deal for him and they’d want his full valuation, which would be somewhere between 25 and 30 million,” he said.

The verdict

Will Palace be able to get that price for Zaha, even though he’s 29 and is approaching the end of his deal? Potentially.

This is, after all, a player who’s proven he can deliver in the Premier League, with 102 direct goal involvements (61 goals and 41 assists) in 279 games.

The £130,000-per-week attacker has been named the club’s Player of the Season on three separate occasions, most recently in 2017/18.

He’s also a former winner of the Premier League’s Player of the Month award, scooping the honour in April 2018.

Zaha also showed what he was capable of on the opening day of the season against Arsenal, winning 11 ground duels, and creating two chances (including one big chance).
