Wilfried Zaha might leave Crystal Palace at the end of the season when his contract expires, with Arsenal, Chelsea, and Barcelona interested.

Wilfried Zaha has been linked with a move to Arsenal, Chelsea and Barcelona. A report from Daily Telegraph claims that the three clubs are hoping to sign the 30-year-old Ivory Coast winger on a free transfer if he leaves Premier League club Crystal Palace.

Zaha has established himself as one of the most reliable attackers in the Premier League, and he could prove to be a quality acquisition for all three clubs. Arsenal need to add more depth in the wide areas, and Zaha is a proven performer in the Premier League.

He will add goals, assists and flair in the final third. His arrival will also allow Mikel Arteta to rotate players like Bukayo Saka, and Gabriel Martinelli more often. The Ivory Coast winger has seven goals and three assists to his name across all competitions for a struggling Crystal Palace side this season. His numbers are likely to improve exponentially when he is playing for a top PL club.

Similarly, Chelsea need to add more goals to their attack and Zaha would be a quality acquisition. However, the Blues recently signed Mykhaolo Mudryk who plays in a similar position to that of the Crystal Palace winger. So it remains to be seen how they accommodate both players in the starting lineup. Nonetheless, Chelsea remain interested in the 30-year-old.

As far as Barcelona or concerned, they could look to sell players like Raphinha in the summer. And Zaha would be a useful alternative on a free transfer. The Catalan giants are going through financial difficulties, and they are looking to raise funds through sales.

Replacing Raphinha with a free agent will save a lot of money for the Spanish outfit and it would help them land their own targets in the summer transfer window. The opportunity to play for clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea and Barcelona will be an attractive option for the 30-year-old winger who will feel that this is his final opportunity to join a big club.

Zaha has the ability to perform at the highest level and he could be tempted to join a club playing in the Champions League next season.
