Chelsea are ‘definitely’ considering a move for Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha ahead of deadline day at Stamford Bridge, according to journalist Simon Phillips.
Thomas Tuchel has overseen an incredibly busy few months of business in west London but could still add further to his squad ahead of the September 1 cut-off
What is the latest news on Zaha?
According to 90Min, the 29-year-old was being targeted by the Blues at the start of August as Tuchel looked to bolster his attacking options.
The report claims that Chelsea turned to Zaha after missing out on a deal for Raphinha, who joined Barcelona from Leeds earlier in the summer.
It is also understood that Jose Mourinho is interested in adding the Ivory Coast international to his Roma side.
Transfer insider Dean Jones has hinted to The Done Deal Show that Zaha could be a target for Arsenal later in the window.
Jones reports that the Gunners are considering a move for Zaha alongside the likes of Yeremy Pino and Pedro Neto.
What has Phillips said on a potential deal?
Phillips understands that Zaha is definitely being considered as an option at Stamford Bridge ahead of the transfer window closing.
The journalist claims he is a player greatly admired by Tuchel and could be attainable with just one-year remaining on his current Selhurst Park deal.
