Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha is set for another summer of transfer speculation, with teams across Europe readying offers for the Ivorian.

Zaha went public with his desire to leave Selhurst Park last summer, but Palace's reported asking price of £80m was enough to scare off suitors like Arsenal, Everton and Napoli.

Roy Hodgson is well aware that Zaha is his star player and club talisman. Despite a relatively poor season personally, Zaha is still joint-top for assists (3) and second for goals (4) at Palace in the Premier League in 2019/20, and it's clear to see why the Eagles have put up such a fight to keep him.

According to the Daily Mail, Palace will have another battle on their hands this year as Zaha is wanted by teams from the Premier League, Bundesliga and La Liga.

Beginning with England, Everton are believed to retain an interest in Zaha after their up-and-down season, while Newcastle United are also understood to be keen on striking a deal if their Saudi-backed takeover goes through.

Overseas, Atlético Madrid are named as potential suitors as they look for an answer to their frequent lack of creativity, and Bayern Munich, who 90min exclusively revealed began monitoring Zaha back in July 2019, are also said to retain an interest.

Bayern's interest this time around is debatable after they just shelled out £41m on Leroy Sané from Manchester City, and the Bundesliga side have already confirmed that they won't be pursuing big deals this summer after landing their top target.

Whether Palace will be willing to sell Zaha this summer remains to be seen. He is still seen as a vital player at Selhurst Park, but the financial impact of the coronavirus outbreak, coupled with his well-known desire to leave, could change things.

It's all going to come down to Palace's asking price. Zaha still has three years remaining on his contract, so the Eagles are under no immediate pressure to sell, but any high asking price will likely scare away all suitors again.
