Zaha is a man in demand as the transfer window for Premier League clubs to make signings enters its final stretch.

And having lived in London since the age of four, it seems Zaha is desperate to remain in the capital, linking him with Chelsea and Tottenham. As per Mirror, Wilfried Zaha is keen on departing Palace this window, and could put in an official transfer request soon.

Zaha, who is now in his second stint with Palace, has previously represented one of Chelsea's biggest league rivals, in the form of Manchester United, in the past.

Chelsea have also been linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund starlet Christian Pulisic over the past few weeks, while a move for Manchester United's Anthony Martial has also been mooted.

According to the Daily Mail, a potential swoop for Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha will be at the top of the agenda.

Chelsea have emerged as favourites to sign the Ivorian winger as Tottenham are unwilling to meet Palace's asking price for the player.

The Ivory Coast worldwide only penned a five-year contract with Palace last summer, but it has been suggested that the player is keen to secure a transfer to Chelsea.

Zaha, who signed a £100,000-a-week new deal at Selhurst Park just over a year ago, has rejected Palace's offer of a new contract boosting his pay packet by another £25,000-a-week.
