Crystal Palace is preparing for an offer from Paris Saint-Germain for Wilfried Zaha, according to reports.
Zaha has been heavily linked with a move away from Palace in recent years after seemingly outpacing them with her form levels.
For example, Tottenham and Arsenal are among those that have been linked. There were also some rumors of an unlikely return to Manchester United.
With the January transfer window approaching, and after a strong start to the season, Zaha’s future is back in the spotlight.
The Ivory Coast international has been thriving in a more central role this season. He has eight goals and two assists in 14 Premier League games so far.
His importance to Palace is clear, so they may be concerned if the big clubs call back the 28-year-old.
Recent reports suggested that AC Milan had identified Zaha as someone who could help them maintain their challenge for the title in Serie A this season..
However, he may not be the only suitor in Europe. According to Sun., PSG could make a move if Mauricio Pochettino becomes their new coach.
Pochettino is expected to be the man to replace the recently fired Thomas Tuchel. The former Tottenham manager previously played for PSG and could now return to the French capital as a coach.
If his appointment is confirmed, he will quickly turn his attention to the transfer market. PSG need reinforcements to return to the top of Ligue 1.
Poch wanted Zaha at Spurs
Pochettino was a driving force behind Tottenham’s previous interest in Zaha. Thus, Sun. They claim Palace is concerned that it may rekindle the interest of its potential new club.
PSG will back their new boss on the transfer market, although it could cost up to £ 50m to get Zaha away. Palace is desperate to keep his key player, who is under contract until 2023.
However, Zaha wants to prove himself at the highest level again, so he can be receptive to offers.
