Wilfried Zaha offered to Olympique Marseille

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has been offered to Olympique Marseille, according to Foot Mercato.

Zaha, who is sidelined with a groin problem, is facing an uncertain future at Selhurst Park as he enters the final few months of his contract.

Earlier this season, Zaha reiterated his commitment to Palace off the back of another summer where he was, once again, the subject of major transfer gossip.

“My contract is up when my contract is up – I’m a Crystal Palace player,” Zaha told Sky Sports.

“The only thing I’m focused on is doing well for the club and that’s it. I take every day as it comes because I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future.

“So yeah, I’m very devoted to Palace and that’s all I’m thinking about.”

However, he has since failed to put pen to paper on a new deal and is set to leave his current employers at the end of the season.

Despite attracting interest from two Saudi Arabian clubs, Zaha is expected to continue to ply his trade in Europe with several teams firmly in the hunt for his signature.

Long-term admirers Arsenal have been linked with a Bosman move, while AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund and Monaco also reportedly hold an interest in Zaha.

The 30-year-old has now been pitched to Marseille as a potential target ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

With Alexis Sanchez and Dimitri Payet boasting a combined age of 70, Marseille will need to reinforce their attacking department next summer as they did in January with the acquisition of Vitinha and Ruslan Malinovskyi.

Igor Tudor’s side are second in the Ligue 1 table and on course to secure Champions League football, which would do their chances of landing high-profile targets the world of good.
