West Ham United have reportedly joined the hunt for Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha – as covered by The Mirror.
Tottenham Hotspur and Everton have both been strongly linked with a move for Zaha in recent days, but it is understood that West Ham are also in the mix.
That said, it is being reported that Palace want £60m for the 25-year-old, which will make it very difficult for West Ham to sign him this summer.
The attacker – rated at £27m by Transfermarkt – scored nine times and registered five assists in 29 Premier League appearances for Palace during the 2017-18 campaign.

And the Eagles have every right to demand a huge price for the Ivorian.
The West Ham fans have been reacting to their club’s potential interest on social media, and it would be fair to say that they have differing views.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the West Ham supporters can be seen below:
Never in a million years is Zaha worth anywhere near that amount

No thanks, rather put the money into batshuyai

Definitely think batshuayi would be the smarter move!
