Wilfred Zaha has revealed that he is determined to quit Crystal Palace this window and is keen on landing a mega money switch to Chelsea. The Ivorian has rejected new contract offers from Palace earlier this off-season and has also been linked with Tottenham Hotspur.

Barcelona turn attention to Vidal

Barcelona have switched their focus towards Bayern Munich's in-demand Arturo Vidal. The Chilean's teammate Thiago Alcantara has also been linked with a move away from Germany in recent weeks with a return to Camp Nou highly on the cards.

Barca have been offered the opportunity to sign Vidal by his agent, who is keen on quitting Bayern this month. Ernesto Valverde is in dire need of a new midfielder following the departures of Andres Iniesta and Paulinho.

The Spanish Champions will miss out on Adrien Rabiot, who is close to signing a new deal with PSG while they are also in the hunt for Miralem Pjanic, N'Golo Kante and Paul Pogba among others but no deal has transpired for any of their transfer targets yet.

Meanwhile, Vidal is 31 and wouldn't provide a long term solution to Barcelona. Similarly, he has a history of suffering crucial injuries that have kept him out on the sidelines for a substantial period of time and Valverde will have to think twice before pushing a deal for Vidal.
