Chelsea have been strongly linked with a move for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha this January but it seems the Ivory Coast international won’t be joining Chelsea any time soon.

According to 90min, Chelsea are unlikely to pursue a move for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha because manager Frank Lampard does not see the Ivory Coast international as the right fit for the squad.

Lampard wants the right players to complement his squad and Zaha isn’t suitable in the eyes of Lampard and assistant Jody Morris.

If Chelsea go ahead with the signing of Zaha, the club will be doing that without the consent of Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and this could cause issues at the club.

Bayern Munich and Tottenham have also been linked with Zaha.
