Manchester City have joined Chelsea and Arsenal in pursuing Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, according to the Mirror.

The Premier League leaders are believed to be eyeing alternatives to Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez who may still stay at the Emirates for the remainder of the season.

Chelsea were said to be considering a January bid for Zaha but a summer offer was believed to be more likely. However, the entry of a third club in the race to sign the 25 year old has reportedly led to Palace upping their valuation of the player to £40m.

Following an ill fated move to Manchester United back in 2013, and a poor loan spell at Cardiff City, the Ivorian international has rebuilt his career back playing at Selhurst Park. The Eagles midfielder has been in excellent form over the past 12 months, and in his last 48 appearances for Palace since the start of last season, he has scored 11 goals and provided 12 assists.
