The "Eagles" are desperate to hold on to their homegrown hero and are believed to have offered him a fresh contract worth in the region of £125,000 a week in order to tempt him to stay.

Further, it is reported that Zaha has rejected the club's advance at renewing his contract and bettering the package he now earns, with fresh terms giving him up to £125,000-a-week, a decent step-up from a recent contract he signed that sees him earn £100,000-a-week now. Tottenham are also interested in the Ivory Coast global.

Zaha who is one of Crystal Palace most influential player failed to join Everton when the switch fell through earlier in the summer. 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 Blues though, have been more concrete with their interest in the 25-year-old.

Zaha could have been seen as a direct replacement for Willian, the Brazil worldwide has been heavily linked with a departure from Chelsea this summer.

Instead, he is eager for a big-money move to Chelsea, with Maurizio Sarri potentially in the market for a marauding frontman should Willian leave.

Jorginho and Rob Green are the Blues' only signings so far, with Sarri keen to splash the cash before the transfer window shuts on August 9.

According to the Daily Mail, a potential swoop for Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha will be at the top of the agenda.

Chelsea appear to be winning the race for Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha.

He could even consider lodging an official transfer request after Palace told him they would only consider an irresistibly huge offer.
