However, the 25-year-old is rather much-more habituated in playing in Palace colors having played 110 games for the club in his first stint from 2010-2013 and 113 games since he made his return to the club three years ago.
Everton turned to Watford wideman Richarlison instead, and now Zaha is up for a move across London to Stamford Bridge. As per Mirror, Wilfried Zaha is keen on departing Palace this window, and could put in an official transfer request soon.
"If you look at the team it's a very good team but the squad's not huge". To add to it, Brazilian winger Willian is also a subject of interest for Manchester United, which has further increased Chelsea's need to strengthen in the wide areas.
Chelsea could now make what will be an "eleventh hour" move for the 25-year old Ivory Coat global, with the Mirror suggesting that Tottenham have withdrawn their interest - having been put off by the price-tag.

The Ivory Coast global only penned a five-year contract with Palace last summer, but it has been suggested that the player is keen to secure a transfer to Chelsea.
Palace had offered the Ivorian worldwide a new £125,000-a-week deal in a desperate attempt to keep hold of their Player of the Year, but it seems the bright lights of Stamford Bridge are too appealing for the 25-year-old.
