Chelsea continue to be linked with Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha.

The Independent reports that agent Federico Pastorello has spoken to Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia about brokering a possible move for the winger.

The Blues are said to be interested in a potential deal despite the arrival of Christian Pulisic in the summer and the fact that Callum Hudson-Odoi has since signed a long-term deal at Stamford Bridge.

Giroud move unlikely – Sun

Olivier Giroud looks unlikely to leave Chelsea during next month’s transfer window, The Sun say.

Giroud has been linked with several clubs, including in his native France, and has been widely tipped to move on.

But The Sun say clubs are reluctant to spend money on the striker rather than wait to sign him on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of the season.
