Dortmund line up Palace star to replace Pulisic
Borussia Dortmund are lining up a bid for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha as they look to replace Christian Pulisic.
Pulisic signed for Chelsea earlier this month and has been loaned back to the German giants until the end of the campaign.
The make-up of that deal has afforded Dortmund more time to try and find a successor, and it’s understood Zaha is a top target.
Dortmund expressed an interest in the winger last year but Palace’s £44million valuation proved to be a stumbling block.
With £58million coming in for Pulisic, it has allowed Dortmund to reassess the situation and reports claim they are ready to go back in for the Ivory Coast international.
Undoubtedly, Zaha has been a key figure at Selhurst Park since returning from an unsuccessful spell with Manchester United, however, the Eagles will find it tough to keep hold of the 26-year-old if their valuation is met.
