Wilfried Zaha has told Crystal Palace he wants to leave AGAIN and hopes to seal an exit before the start of pre-season training… and the Eagles are open to selling him this summer
- Wilfried Zaha has once again told Crystal Palace he wants to leave, reports claim
- The forward has expressed his desire to quit Selhurst Park in recent seasons
- He has been linked with Arsenal and Everton but failed to secure a move
- Palace could be willing to cash in on Zaha after scoring just three goals in 2021
Crystal Palace are willing to listen to offers for Wilfried Zaha after he reiterated his desire to leave Selhurst Park.
Zaha has held talks with the club and outlined his wish to move away.
And, while they would prefer to keep their best player, there is an acceptance at Palace that Zaha is ready to move on for a second time.
Wilfried Zaha has reportedly informed Crystal Palace of his desire to leave this summer
The Ivorian, heavily linked with Arsenal in the past, has sought to quit in recent seasons
He has spent 11 seasons at Palace split over two spells, making almost 400 appearances, scoring 68 goals and racking up 72 assists. He also helped the club back into the Premier League in 2013.
And after his service to the south Londoners, chairman Steve Parish will not stand in his way, should they receive a reasonable bid for the 28-year-old, who has two years left on his contract.
Having been priced out of a move in previous summers, an offer in excess of £30million or cash-plus-player deal could be enough to tempt Palace.
Meanwhile, Christian Benteke has signed a new two-year deal, keeping him at Palace until 2023.
