Crystal Palace Attacker Offered to Roma by His Agents

The entourage of Wilfried Zaha has proposed their client to Roma. The Giallorossi need to complete some sales before making an addition to the role. The departure of Nicolò Zaniolo would finance multiple purchases. But they must also find a taker for the returning Justin Kluivert and Carlos Perez.

According to Sky Italy, José Mourinho and director Tiago Pinto appreciate the skills of the forward, but they will not make an offer in short order. The 29-year-old has spent the last eight seasons at Crystal Palace, putting up strong numbers after failing to impress at Manchester United. He has bagged 83 goals in 429 appearances with the Eagles. He hit the net 15 times and tailed 2 assists in the most recent campaign.

His price tag is held in check by the fact that his contract runs out in 2023. Still, his side set a €35M price tag, and he has large wages, Calciomercato informs. Felix Afena-Gyan could be included in the package despite recently extending his deal, La Repubblica relays (via Tuttomercatoweb).

On top of Zaha, Roma have been liked to a few offensive targets. Their pursuits of Gonçalo Guedes and Domenico Berardi directly hinge on how much they will get for Zaniolo. José Mourinho is pushing to sign Paulo Dybala, but his requests are too high for the management. The negotiation with Bodo/Glimt for Ola Solbakken is progressing slowly.

Our Take on Roma and Zaha

The Giallorossi would need another top-notch attacker if they parted ways with their starlet. They have brought in multiple Premier League players since José Mourinho joined. Therefore, an attempt for the Crystal Palace ace could indeed be in the cards, although it depends on how much Crystal Palace ask for him. There are options with more upside out there, especially at those numbers.
