The Wilfried Zaha to Chelsea transfer saga may not be dead just yet, according to one reliable journalist.  Ivory Coast international has lit up the Premier League with his displays in recent times and seems like he could be a perfect signing in a problem position for the London club.

Wilfried’s skill, trickery and eye for goal could make him a perfect replacement for Eden Hazard, and James Olley told the Evening Standard in a question-and-answer session that he suspects this agreement could still be possible for Chelsea.

However, he says Eagles would likely have an asking price of around £80m for Zaha, which would probably need to be lowered for Blues to consider stepping up their interest. Frank Lampard wants to strengthen the front-line during the summer transfer window.

Blues supporters will surely be hoping a deal for the 27-year-old winger can come to something, with Sport suggesting a move for Jadon Sancho looks unlikely, and that Philippe Coutinho could be an alternative. Blues signed Ajax attacker Hakim Ziyech during the winter transfer window

While Philippe is a big name, he’s flopped at Barcelona and may Blues fans would surely see the Ivorian forward as the superior option if they cannot get Jadon Sancho. Chelsea signed Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid and Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund recently.
