The Sun claims, Chelsea have been linked with a move for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha in January.

It is no secret that Chelsea were unable to sign any players during the summer window. A two-window transfer ban restricted them from doing business but they did manage to get it overturned, meaning January could be a very exciting month for Chelsea.

Zaha continues to be linked with the London giants and the south London outfit could be open to doing business for a price of around £80m.

It isn’t always easy to sign players in January. There is lesser time and the fees are usually higher. But with that said, Zaha truly has the quality to play for a bigger club.

His price might not necessarily be the cheapest but Chelsea must consider getting rid of some deadwood and sanctioning a deal for the towering Ivorian.

Zaha has the ability to change the game by himself. He is pacy, strong and is adept at dribbling the ball like nobody’s business. He has been inconsistent over time but the player continues to be one the brightest stars at Selhurst Park.

As things stand, the Blues would be wise to add another attacker in the next window to regain their lost glory. Despite having Callum Hudson-Odoi, Christian Pulisic and Pedro in the squad, Frank Lampard is a bit thin on the wings.
