The Blues are also willing to involve a player in the deal
Chelsea are expected to overhaul their side this summer after an underwhelming Premier League and Champions League campaign last season. They finished 5th in the league and will miss the Champions League in the upcoming season.
The Blues appointed Maurizio Sarri as their new manager after sacking Antonio Conte and also completed the signing of midfielder Jorginho from Napoli, the club’s first summer signing.
They have been behind in the transfer window in comparison to other Premiere League clubs but with their managerial situation sorted, they are keen add more players before the transfer window closes.
With Eden Hazard and Willian constantly linked with a summer exit, the Premier League giants have been heavily linked with a move for Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha.
The Ivory Coast International came up through the ranks of Crystal Palace and made his senior debut for the club in the 2010-2011 season. He was instrumental in the club’s promotion to the Premier League before attracting interest from Manchester United and joining them.
But the winger struggled to find his feet at United as he found himself out of favour by then manager David Moyes. In the following season he went to Palace on a loan deal before making the move permanent in 2015.
Since then the 25 year old has been the main man for the Eagles, singlehandedly winning many matches for the club. He has developed himself as one of the best and most exciting performers in the league.
The Ivorian enjoyed his most productive campaign ever last season, scoring 9 goals and assisting 3 in 29 league appearances despite sidelined for 2 separate spells. His performances helped the club secure the Premier League football as they failed to win a single match in the 9 games he missed.
He signed a new five-year deal last summer worth around £110,000 a week but has been heavily linked with a summer exit. Tottenham and Everton in addition to Sarri’s side have all shown strong interest in him.
The player reportedly himself wants to test himself at another big club after struggling to make any significant impact for the Red Devils.
Chelsea have submitted an offer of £30 million plus Danny Drinkwater to sign Wilfried Zaha from , according to Metro.
Drinkwater was signed from Leicester City last summer but struggled to make an impact throughout the season. The new coach does not see him in his future plans and ready to offload him in order to sign the exciting forward.
