MANCHESTER CITY have joined Chelsea and Arsenal in the race to sign Wilfried Zaha, according to reports.
The former Manchester United winger has been one of the Premier League’s star players this season after firing Crystal Palace off the bottom of the table and out of the relegation zone.
Now City are considering giving Zaha another crack at Champions League football after he flopped during less than two years at Old Trafford.
Under Roy Hodgson, he has seen a real upturn in form this term, proven with his goal in the Eagles’ 3-0 win at Leicester over the weekend.
According to the Mirror, Manchester City have joined Chelsea and Arsenal in considering a move for the 25-year-old.
City reportedly view Zaha as a credible alternative to Alexis Sanchez, should the club fail to land the Chilean, who is set to leave Arsenal on a free at the end of the season.
Chelsea’s attacking play has gone stale in recent weeks, with the likes of Eden Hazard and Pedro proving erratic at times as Antonio Conte’s side have searched for an attacking spark.
And Zaha has also caught the eye of Tottenham and Arsenal – and Spurs showed firm interest until recently.
The former Manchester United winger had a poor spell at Old Trafford.
He was loaned to Cardiff City and then back to Palace during the tenures of David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.
The Blues could look to go back into the transfer market over the summer, with Zaha a big potential target.
Conte’s side have clearly struggled with juggling Champions League and Premier League football this season and could look to add more strength-in-depth ahead of their clash with Barcelona.
