Could Todd Boehly be on the verge of repeating a transfer trick that helped Chelsea land their most recent signing?


Wilfried Zaha Chelsea transfer swap deals eyed as Todd Boehly replicates Marc Cucurella trick

Wilfried Zaha to Chelsea is a transfer rumour that is gaining traction.

The Ivorian was linked to a Stamford Bridge switch in the past when Antonio Conte was in charge, but nothing came of it.

Crystal Palace used his contract length to demand £60-70 million from clubs such as Chelsea and Arsenal, both of which have previously expressed interest.

Fast forward to the present, and new attackers are on the agenda for the new owners ahead of the September 1 deadline, with Todd Boehly currently undergoing a mass exodus of transfer outgoings, with Timo Werner the most recent to be confirmed out the door.

With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang expected to be the main striker target as Chelsea awaits a final ‘green light’ from Barcelona to make their moves, it is understood that a new wide player could also be on the cards as Callum Hudson  Odoi’s  loan exit looms closer, despite the fact that his next club is unknown.

Chelsea could even try a Marc Cucurella trick to get what they want in this situation. 

Brighton signed Levi Colwill on loan as part of the £63 million transfer saga that concluded last Friday.

Will Crystal Palace play ball in the same way?

According to  90Min Football, if Patrick Vieira’s side play ball in this situation, Thomas Tuchel’s side could offer the Eagles either Hudson-Odoi or former Palace loanee Conor Gallagher in exchange.

What would Zaha think about leaving Palace at this point in his career, with only one year left on his current contract?

According to talkSPORT, Chelsea are being encouraged to make a move for the 29-year-old, with the player himself ‘keen’ on making the cross-city move to West London, knowing that this may be his final chance in his prime to make a big move to a so-called top six side.

It remains to be seen whether Boehly can repeat the Cucurella trick in this situation to entice the south Londoners into multiple deals in exchange for their star player, but Steve Parish will be aware that this will be one of the last opportunities for him to cash in on the Ivory Coast international, with his true transfer value plummeting constantly as the prospect of free agency enters the picture.
