Chelsea are interested in signing Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, according to reports in the UK.
Despite the club’s transfer ban, the Blues are already planning for next summer, and are considering a move for the 26-year-old if he is still available.
A few fans on Twitter want the club to make the move for Zaha:

Everton are said to be planning a £60m bid, plus Cenk Tosun, for Zaha, but whether that would satisfy Crystal Palace, it is debatable.
The Eagles have slapped an £80m price tag on the Ivorian international and have already rejected a £40m offer from Arsenal for the winger this summer.
Chelsea are likely considering Zaha as a potential replacement for Eden Hazard, but even so, his favoured position on the left-hand side is also favoured by Callum Hudson-Odoi.
It would be a big surprise if they brought in another high profile player to rival the teenager considering the efforts they have made to agree a new contract with the player.
