Crystal Palace 'stick to £80m Wilfried Zaha valuation' amid Chelsea transfer interest

Crystal Palace are reportedly determined to stick to their £80million valuation of Wilfried Zaha as Chelsea prepare to swoop in the January transfer window.

Last summer Palace stood firm in their valuation of Zaha, seeing off interest from
Arsenal and Everton in the Ivory Coast winger.

Zaha is contracted to the Eagles until 2023, but has expressed his desire to leave Selhurst Park. It is understood Palace will not stand in Zaha's way should Chelsea come calling in January, but they are determined to only sell him if the price is right.

The Eagles will refuse to be short-changed due to a 25% sell-on clause in the £6million deal which took him from Manchester United to Palace in 2015, according to the Daily Mail.

And that will mean Chelsea having to fork out £9m more than the current club-record they paid for goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga last year.

Zaha endured a tricky start to the season but is beginning to show the form that has seen him linked with Arsenal throughout the summer.

Arsenal had a £40m bid rejected by Palace last summer, while Everton offered £70m plus two players.

Chelsea have also been linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho in January after their transfer ban was halved - although it is thought the England international will be unable to leave the Bundesliga club until the summer.
