The Ivory Coast international has scored three goals and registered two assists for Palace so far this season.
Born in the Ivory Coast, Zaha grew up in England from the age of four. He made his debut for the England national team in 2012. He made two non-competitive appearances for England, the latter of which came in 2013, before switching his allegiances to the Ivory Coast ahead of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
The January transfer window has been open for a week now and the Crystal Palace ace’s situation is one of the big talking points once again, as it has been for previous transfer windows.
Zaha has been linked with a move to Tottenham in the past, with Arsenal the mooted destination last summer.
Chelsea have emerged as a potential buyer this January, while Zaha has now changed agent and Spurs are back in the frame again.
Amid concerns that Zaha could be on the move in January, Crystal Palace legend John Salako has outlined exactly why a move to Chelsea would be perfect for the winger.
