Crystal Palace may face a battle to keep Wilfried Zaha in the summer with Borussia Dortmund keen to make him their record signing.

Zaha, 26, has been the subject of interest from fellow Premier League clubs such as Chelsea and Tottenham in recent years, but signed a five-year deal at Selhurst Park last summer.

Dortmund will lose Christian Pulisic to Chelsea at the end of the season and have eyed up Zaha as a replacement.

Despite Zaha’s struggle to find form this year, Dortmund would be prepared to spend more than the 30m they spent on Andre Schurrle back in 2016.

The Guardian report that Zaha’s representatives have already been contacted by the German club and that the Ivory Coast international would be open to a move and the chance to play Champions League football.

It is thought Zaha would cost more than £50m, but recent sales of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Pulisic mean Dortmund have the cash to spend.

Callum Hudson-Odoi is attracting interest from Liverpool, as well as Bayern Munich

Reports in Germany suggest Liverpool are keen to hijack Bayern Munich’s move for Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The future of the 18-year-old has been one of the main storylines in the January transfer window, now BILD suggest there are more teams in play.

Hudson-Odoi is reluctant to sign a new deal at Chelsea – his current one runs out in 2020 – as he does not feel he’ll get the game time.

Jadon Sancho’s success at Dortmund has opened Bayern’s eyes to English talent and Hudson-Odoi’s to the opportunities in the Bundesliga.

But Liverpool have reportedly made contact with his representatives and had a meeting in early January.

RB Leipzig are another side tipped with an interest, although the English media say that Liverpool’s interest is false.
