AC Milan are thought to be interested in signing Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha this January, according to a report by The Sun.
It has been claimed that I Rossoneri believe the Ivory Coast winger can help fire them to their first Serie A title in ten years.
The Italian outfit already sit at the top of the table, but are thought to be on the hunt for more firepower as they look to win their first Scudetto since the 2010/11 season.
And, it seems Wilfried Zaha has become a person of interest for the Milan outfit as they believe he can help them bolster their options in that department.
Indeed, the 28-year-old has been a standout for Crystal Palace this season as he continues to prove crucial to Roy Hodgson’s side in Premier League competition.
The winger is on course for his best-ever goalscoring campaign, as he has managed to net eight goals and provide an additional two assists in his 14 matches so far, having got his most recent goal against Leicester City with a superb volley. Furthermore, he will have only delighted bettors using www.betting24.se for all their football betting needs.
AC Milan are thought to have been impressed with Zaha’s ability to play in a central role and his goal tally for this season, despite the struggles that the rest of the team have been having.
Christian Benteke is the only other Eagles player to have managed to score more than one Premier League goal so far this season.
However, AC Milan could find it hard to prize Zaha away from Selhurst Park this January as Crystal Palace have stuck their feet into the ground when it comes to a possible transfer for him.
The Ivorian has been the subject of a number of offers over the last 18 months, with the likes of Everton, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur having all been linked in the past.
Hodgson will be desperate to kee his star in January, and recently spoke glowing of him, thus making any move potentially difficult for the Serie A outfit.
He said: “Zaha’s constantly evolving. He’s more and more aware about the need to bring end product to his game.
“He’s always been a good assister, in terms of providing penalties and assists for goals.
“He’s working very hard now to make certain he chips in with goals of his own, and that’s clearly shown by the fact he’s our top goalscorer this season, and he’s done pretty well even in the general goalscoring table.
“I think that he’s becoming more and more aware of what’s required from him and how he can best use his skills for the team’s benefit.
“And I think that’s something that you would expect from someone who is now probably in his best footballing years.”
