Seven-time European champions AC Milan have emerged as a surprise suitor for highly rated Crystal Palace winger WilfriedZaha. The interest of the Rossoneri in the England-born Ivorian international was confirmed by one of the biggest newspapers in the United Kingdom, The Sun. It was revealed that the Rossoneri want to sign Zaha to boost their title challenge. AC Milan have made a fantastic start to the new league season in the Italian Serie A and they are the only unbeaten team in the competition this season. The former European champions are the only unbeaten team in the Italian Serie A after 14 games this season.
WilfriedZaha is a quality winger that would set AC Milan back financially due to the high transfer fee expected from Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish if the Rossoneri decide to back their interest in the player with a concrete offer. AC Milan want to sign Zaha next month but they will have to pay a lot of money to secure his signature. In the previous transfer windows, clubs likeTottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Everton, Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea have all been touted as a potential destination for the player who’s the star of the Crystal Palace team under Roy Hodgson.
Arsenal and Everton had several bids rejected for Zaha by Crystal Palace at the start of last season with the player keen to leave the club at that time. The failure to move away from Crystal Palace affected his form last season but the same thing can’t be said about this season. WilfriedZaha has been in good form this term and he’s on course for his best season since he became a professional footballer. The Ivorian international has scored eight goals in the Premier League this season in addition to providing two assists in his 14 appearances.
