The Times have reported that Crystal Palace star, Wilfried Zaha, has informed the club of his desire to leave this summer before pre-season training begins. 

Zaha still has around 24 months left on his current deal with Palace but now wants to seek an exit from the London-based club.

In the build-up to the summer transfer window, it was reported that both Tottenham and Arsenal were interested in signing Zaha this year.

Spurs reportedly had a bid rejected for the winger back in 2016, offering Crystal Palace £15m for Zaha’s services. Fast forward to 2019 and Arsenal also had an offer of £40m knocked back by the Eagles.

After the Arsenal bid, it was reported that Zaha handed in a formal transfer request and the attacker now seems to be keen on leaving Palace again this summer.

The Times now claim that Crystal Palace are actually open to a sale this time around, but it remains to be seen whether bids come in again before pre-season.
