  Wilfried Zaha content at Palace but is not ruling out a move Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has admitted that he is happy at the club but failed to dismiss claims that he would leave the club in the future, according to Sky Sports. Zaha has been a vital player for the club throughout the season despite struggling with injuries. He’s scored 8 goals in 27 matches so far this campaign. Zaha has missed 8 games in the league and Palace haven’t scored a goal or won a single point in his absence. Zaha did spend a small amount of time at Manchester United in 2013 but, came straight back to the club and has had a fine impact on his side. The Palace talisman spoke about the specualtion linking him with a move: “There’s always going to be speculation. I am just trying to keep my head down, play my football. I am enjoying my football and I am contracted at Palace. I don’t really see myself anywhere [else]. I moved away when I was 19, 20, Whatever happened before happened and I have grown mentally, so that won’t scare me, if I get the opportunity to move away eventually, that will not scare me because of what happened in the past.

Five of the Premier League top six all chasing Wilfried Zaha

  Five of the Premier League top six all chasing Wilfried Zaha Manchester City, Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal are all keeping tabs on Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, according to the Daily Mirror. Zaha’s former club Manchester United seem to be the only top club not interested in signing the Ivorian star. Spurs are most likely to make the first move on Zaha, as Manchester City’s first choice would be Riyad Mahrez, and Chelsea and Arsenal still need to resolve their manager situations. Champions League finalists Liverpool could also be in with a shout but Palace will be looking for big money for one of the hottest properties in the league. Ex-Eagles chaiman Simon Jordan thinks the Ivorian star could go for between £50m and £70m. “I think Wilfried Zaha is a £50million to £70million player in this market place. If you put him in a side that has some real balance and poise about it, you’d only get more from him. I think £50m would be the lowest he should go for. I think he’ll go for nearer £70m.” The 25-year-old said last week that he can’t see himself leaving Palace this window but isn’t ruling out a return to one of the top six clubs at some point in the future.

City atempted to bring the Algerian to the club in January, only for that move to fall through as the deadline approached. The 'Foxes' are keen to bring City youngster Patrick Roberts to the club, but it is understood that any move for the former Celtic loanee would come separate from the Mahrez

After Riyad Mahrez's move to Manchester City , Zaha can now be considered the best player outside the 'big six', and Tottenham are keen to change that. However, Zaha has reportedly turned down a new contract that would see his wages at Selhurst rise to £120,000. Zaha and his representatives are

Pep Guardiola admits he likes Palace star Wilfried Zaha .
Pep Guardiola intends on signing a versatile forward this summer, and he has admitted he is a fan of Wilfried Zaha. Guardiola has confirmed that he is a fan of Zaha ahead of a summer when he plans to recruit a top quality forward. The City boss will look to make at least two additions to his squad this summer, with a defensive midfielder and a forward at the top of his list. Lazio midfielder Jorginho is the top of his list of possible replacements for the outgoing Yaya Toure, while Guardiola is considering a few options for his attack. Riyad Mahrez remains a target after City failed to push through a £60m deal for the Leicester winger in January. Pep may look to sign Palace forward Zaha after he kept his side up this season. City may face opposition from Spurs for the 25-year-old who was Sir Alex Ferguson’s last signing at Old Trafford before his departure. Pep said: “I like Crystal Palace, Zaha and other players.” Zaha however insists he is content at Selhurst Park, he said: “I have no plans on leaving. I’m enjoying my football, you can see how much I’m enjoying it. This is my home and there’s no reason for me to leave.
