Chelsea not interested in £80 million star, claims Frank Lampard
Chelsea news: Frank Lampard has revealed that Chelsea are not interested in signing Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace. The Blues manager was talking to the media after they drew 1-1 at Brighton & Hove Albion.
“I wouldn’t talk about Zaha and the idea of that deal is something I’ve never even considered. No, as I say, I won’t talk about Zaha because he’s not a player of ours.”Lampard on Chelsea’s swapping Giroud for Zaha
Zaha was linked with a move away from Palace in the summer with Arsenal and Everton interested. However, the £80 million price tag slapped in him put them off.
Crystal Palace are still keen on keeping hold of the player despite his agent revealing that the winger wants to leave. The move away seems to be complicated right now and the Eagles’ manager, Roy Hodgson has made it clear that they are not looking to sell him.
“We aren’t trying to sell Wilfried Zaha. We want to keep Wilfried Zaha. What assurances can people give? I know no-one (at the club) is anxious to sell Wilfried Zaha.”Hodgson on Zaha
Chelsea are looking to replace Pedro who is set to leave the club. They have been linked with Jadon Sancho as well.
