Crystal Palace on the hunt for Wilfried Zaha replacement as Chelsea circle

Crystal Palace are considering making a £20 million offer for Burnley winger Dwight McNeil in January if Wilfred Zaha gets his desired move away, according to The Daily Mail.

Chelsea have been heavily linked with a move for Zaha in January, and it’s widely known about his desire to leave the club now for the last year or so.

The Mail believe he is ready to force a move away from Palace in the winter transfer window.

Chelsea are back in business after being cleared to sign players again in January with the Court of Arbitration for Sport ruling in their favour last week.

Zaha is a name on their target list with the majority of the UK media outlets reporting this.

Palace could well be conceding to the fact that they might just have to allow their star man to leave the club, and spend their time and energy on replacing him rather than convincing him to stay.
