Headlines: Arsenal, Chelsea track Zaha
Arsenal and Chelsea both buoyed by the news Wilfried Zaha Seems reluctant to hand his future to Crystal Palace.
According to The Sun, the 29-year-old is waiting to see how the Eagles perform in the Premier League at the end of the season before making a final decision on any new contract.
Zaha becomes a free agent at the end of the season, so he can talk freely with foreign clubs in January. Not surprisingly, Crystal Palace are keen to extend his contract to avoid losing him for nothing in the summer. However, both Arsenal and Chelsea have been linked with the former Manchester United winger and hope they can convince him to make a switch across London.
Palace have offered Zaha a new deal, but he has yet to implement it. He is reportedly earning £130,000 a week and if he re-signs he will not only get improved terms but will likely see him spend his career at Selhurst Park.
Zaha is aware of interest from other clubs and may feel like he has unfinished business as he proves his worth at the highest level.
