Olympique Marseille has shown keen interest in securing the services of Wilfried Zaha, the experienced forward from Crystal Palace. Zaha, who is widely regarded as one of the top wingers from Ivory Coast, has had a successful season, registering six goals and three assists in 25 appearances across various competitions for Crystal Palace. He has also left a mark on the international stage, with five goals in 30 senior appearances for the Ivory Coast national team.
Zaha’s contract with Crystal Palace is set to expire in June. Marseille is said to be actively pursuing him and is optimistic about offering him the opportunity to play in the Champions League next season, which could be an appealing prospect for the 30-year-old winger.
However, Zaha’s availability for Marseille or other potential suitors could be impacted by his current groin injury, which he sustained during a match against Leicester City on April 1. Despite this setback, Zaha’s exceptional talent and potential contribution to a team’s attack have not gone unnoticed, and Marseille is reportedly determined to acquire his services.
Zaha has already turned down a significant offer from Al Ittihad, showcasing his desire to explore other options and potentially play at a higher level. His noteworthy performances for Crystal Palace include a historic moment when he became the first player to score 50 top-flight goals for the club in a memorable 2-0 win against Manchester City in October 2021.
