Chelsea given boost as £80m January target switches agents

Wilfried Zaha has teamed up with renowned agent Pini Zahavi to help realise his ‘desire to win major honours’.

Zaha has been expected to leave Crystal Palace in each of the last two summer transfer windows, signing a new contract after failing to move in 2018 and handing in a transfer request to try and force the situation last year.

The winger has attracted interest from Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton and Napoli of late, with his recent decision to part with Will Salthouse and link up with Zahavi an indication that he still sees his future elsewhere.

Sky Sports say Zaha craves silverware, with a Community Shield win and FA Cup runners-up medal the closest he has come to team glory.

They stress that ‘a move in the summer is more likely’ than in January, with the prospect of leaving the Premier League also entertained.

The news of his link with Zahavi could be a boost to Chelsea, with the Israeli and club owner Roman Abramovich sharing a strong and fruitful relationship.
