Fresh reports have claimed Chelsea are lining up a January move to try and sign Wilfred Zaha, if their transfer ban gets overturned.
Chelsea served the first half of their one-year ban – imposed in February – on registering new players during the summer transfer window, but the club are reportedly confident on getting the ban overturned ahead of the January window.
Their appeal is set for November 20th and if they do manage to get the appeal overturned, then there are some reports in the media which have claimed that Lampard will be handed funds, which were raised by the £130 million sales of players during the summer window, in order to try and add a few more players to the shopping list.
And according to THE TELEGRAPH, the Chelsea hierarchy believe that Lampard should be handed around £150 million to help improve the Blues side, with Zaha reportedly back on the shopping list of the Premier League giants.
Zaha has been in the transfer headlines all summer as a number of top clubs have been linked with a possible move ever since he admitted that he is eyeing up playing at the very top of the game.
But with Chelsea unable to sign any players during the summer window, there was talk that Zaha was keen on a move to the likes of Arsenal and Everton, who both reportedly made moves to get a deal done for the winger.
And ahead of the upcoming window, reports claims Zaha is hopeful of leaving Crystal Palace when the window opens on January 1 and the report claims the south London side could be open to doing business for a ‘reduced price’ to avoid ‘poisoning the dressing room’.
And with the all the speculation surrounding the future of WILLIAN and Pedro, it is believed that the Blues will be keen to add another attacker, or two, to the side in the next window to get used to playing at the club before these two possibly leave the club at the end of the season.
Despite having Callum Hudson-Odoi Callum, Christian Pulisic and Pedro in the squad, Frank Lampard is a bit thin on the wings and will need to add to his squad when they are able to sign players unless one of the talented youngsters comes out and impresses the Blues coach.
Zaha is a man that could be a world class winger if he joins the right club and it would be a shock to see him stay at Palace either this transfer window or next summer, if Palace decide to drop that £80 million price tag.
