CM: Milan offered chance to sign Arsenal, Chelsea target Zaha – the asking price and the response

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have been offered the chance to sign Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace, it is claimed, but the asking price is too high.

The Sun reported earlier in the week how Milan see Zaha as a ‘great addition to a squad’ that could potentially win the Scudetto and put an end to the dominance of Juventus in Serie A, with Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal also linked.

The paper also claimed that the Rossoneri believe him to be ‘in his prime and ready to contribute immediately’, with a bid being considered for the £50m (€55m) man, while today they added that Mauricio Pochettino would like him at PSG, where he is expected to take over imminently.

According to Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com on Twitter, Milan have been offered Zaha – presumably by his entourage – however for the Rossoneri he has too high an asking price at the moment.

The South London club apparently want €50m to sell their best player in the upcoming window, too much for Milan who instead seem to be focused on smart and budget-compliant investments.

    £50M what sort of joke is that. Palace should demand £80M at the very least.

      Keep him!

      30M maximum for him.

    Tim Davies, are you serious £80M for Zaha, have you seen Zaha play, he is very inconsistent, always falling down and he don’t show up in games that matters, typical player from the Prem League, they’re all over priced, Palace can keep him.

    No way we pay 50 million pounds for Zaha…or anyone for that matter unless maybe, maybe it’s a younger player with superstar potential. At 28 Zaha is a good player but not amazing and this story just seems like his agent is trying to drum up interest. Will never happen and I would rather spend the money on players like Upencano, Szobozlai, Soumare, etc…younger players with more upside.
