- Crystal Palace ace Wilfried Zaha is wanted by Chelsea and Tottenham
- The Blues are offering Danny Drinkwater plus cash to Palace to land the Ivorian this summer
- Zaha is reportedly Tottenham top target and they are set to splash £45m on the winger
FA Cup kings Chelsea have tendered an offer of £30 million plus midfielder Danny Drinkwater to sign Ivorian forward Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace, suggest reports coming out of London.
The former Manchester United ace was the Eagles star performer last term after netting nine times alongside five assists in 29 matches.
The 25-year-old has been repeatedly linked with a switch to Chelsea’s London rivals Tottenham for the past two seasons but nothing positive have been reached with Palace so far.
According to the UK Metro report citing sources at UK Sun, Chelsea have now joined the race by submitting an offer to prize-away the Ivory Coast international this summer.
However, the report further revealed that Palace eggheads have snubbed the Blues offer of £30m plus Drinkwater.
The former Premier League winner with Leicester City moved to Stamford Bridge last summer in a £35m deal last summer but has struggled for form in his first season at Chelsea.
Going forward the defensive midfielder looks unlikely to command a regular shirt under Blues new Italian boss Maurizio Sarri in the new season.
On the other hand, Tottenham are still in the race to sign Zaha before next week’s Thursday transfer deadline.
The former Manchester United ace tops Maurizio Pochettino’s wish list and Tottenham are set to cough out about £45m to Palace, alongside a remarkable sell-on clause.
At the moment, Tottenham are reportedly holding discussions to sign Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish as they are yet to bring in new additions this summer.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Chelsea fans are reportedly tired of Alvaro Morata's misfiring and have called on the club to sell the Spanish forward.
