Barcelona amongst two European giants with sights on Wilfried Zaha free transfer

The explosive attacker is a man in-demand

A pair of heavyweights of the European game have identified Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha as a potential addition next summer, according to reports.

The future of wide-man Zaha, of course, has long been up in the air.

This comes with the Ivorian’s current terms at long-time club Palace due to come to a close upon the conclusion of the current campaign.

It is widely understood that the powers that be at Selhurst Park recently tabled a lucrative contract renewal offer to the club’s star man.

Zaha, however, is yet to provide a definitive response, culminating in suggestions that the explosive wide-man’s time in south London could finally be in line to come to an end in 2023.

To this point, rival Premier League clubs have been most frequently tipped as destinations for Zaha, with capital pair Arsenal and Chelsea both long-term admirers.

As alluded to above, though, on Friday, the identities of another pair of big-name clubs keeping a close eye on the situation have been revealed.

As per a report from the Evening Standard, both Barcelona and Juventus are giving serious consideration to moves for Zaha, with a view to a free transfer next summer.

Such outfits would be free to open negotiations with the 29-year-old’s entourage from January, with a view to coming an agreement on the terms of a pre-contract.
