Talks for Wilfried Zaha to replace Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic at Borussia Dortmund

Wilfried Zaha & Crystal Palace

26-year-old Wilfried Zaha is under contract at Crystal Palace until 2023.

Zaha is a massive club favourite, and arguably the best player in the club’s history.

Zaha left Crystal Palace to join Man United earlier in his career. However the Ivory Coast international never cut it at Old Trafford, so he returned to his roots in south London.

Often accused of diving, Zaha has contributed three goals and two assists to Crystal Palace this season in the Premier League.

Chelsea & Christian Pulisic

At the start of the January transfer window, Chelsea confirmed the signing of Christian Pulisic.

Pulisic will leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season to move to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea splashed out 58 million pounds on the American attacking midfielder.

Borussia Dortmund target Zaha

According to SportBild, Borussia Dortmund are considering a move for Zaha this summer.

Crystal Palace are reportedly asking for 50 million euros for their star player. Sport Witness report:

In their magazine this week, SportBild say that talks have been initiated on a potential deal, and it’s explained things go back to last summer.

While Zaha may have been too pricey last summer, Chelsea’s Pulisic money means BVB have the funds to pursue Zaha this summer.

Would Zaha get into the Borussia Dortmund XI?

Probably, however BVB are stacked with quality players in Zaha’s position.

Pulisic has struggled to get into the team, which is a reason why he’s moving to Chelsea.

Jadon Sancho has been a revelation for Dortmund since joining from Man City last summer.

Marco Reus is a Dortmund legend, who will surely play in every match he’s fit for.

Mario Gotze is a regular on the Dortmund bench.
