Wilfried Zaha wants to join Chelsea before transfer deadline

Chelsea offer £30m plus £35m player to sign Tottenham's top target

Wilfried Zaha is wanted by Chelsea and Tottenham

The 25-year-old would be open to a move to a top-six club and has told team-mates there is an offer for him to leave Selhurst Park.

His improvement over the last three seasons has been so astounding that he is now considered to be among the best attacking players in the Premier League.

The Ivorian forward scored nine goals last season to help Palace to avoid relegation last season and has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, having reportedly rejected a new contract.

But the Mirror suggest that the Ivory Coast global has rejected a fresh extension that would improve his terms even further to £125,000-a-week.

China plans tariffs on $60bn of imports to counter Trump
The ministry said timing of the implementation of the new tariffs on U.S. goods would depend on the actions of the US. China's biggest US imports by value in 2017 were aircraft and related equipment, soybeans and autos.

As per Mirror, Wilfried Zaha is keen on departing Palace this window, and could put in an official transfer request soon.

He has already snubbed interest from Everton as he is reluctant to move north again, after a failed stint with Manchester United.

Spurs have been interested in signing the 22-year-old before, with ESPN reporting in April that Pochettino is a big fan of the 2016 Premier League title victor.

If Willian indeed ends up parting ways with Chelsea this summer, Pedro will be the only recognised winger at Maurizio Sarri's disposal in addition to Hazard.

The Mi-8 crashed to the ground seconds after takeoff and exploded in an inferno in the Krasnoyarsk region of Russian Federation . The dead were working for a subsidiary of oil giant Rosneft in the remote Vankor oil field, which is above the Arctic Circle.

Palace will not sell the Ivory Coast global unless they are offered a huge sum to sell him for a second time in his career.

But, according to Guardian Sport, Crystal Palace are determined that they will not sell Zaha.

That gives Chelsea a clear run at the player, although significant hurdles remain if they are to agree a deal before the transfer window closes. An interesting next few days beckon.
