Crystal Palace bracing for double summer swoop from Euro giants

Wilfried Zaha and Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Budesliga duo Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are lining up respective summer moves for Crystal Palace stars Wilfried Zaha and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to Sky Sports.

The duo have both been in impressive form for the Eagles this season, with Zaha netting eight goals and chipping in with five assists in 25 Premier League appearances.

Wan-Bissaka too has shown outstanding quality following his graduation from the Eagles academy to register a spot in Roy Hodgson’s first-team.

Sky Sports reports that Borussia Dortmund are weighing up summer move for Zaha as they identify him as the best replacement to departing Christian Pulisic, who has agreed deal to join Chelsea in the summer for £57.6m.

Wan-Bissaka, meanwhile, could head to Bayern as the Bavarian’s new full-back to partner Joshua Kimmich in defence, after Rafinha had announced on the club’s official website that his “cycle at Bayern is coming to an end”.

Crystal Palace have already tied the duo to a long-term contracts, which will likely command hefty fees if they are to leave this summer.

Zaha current contract runs until 2023, while Wan-Bissaka signed a new deal recently that runs until the summer of 2022.

With all that being said, Crystal Palace will still surely be desperate to keep hold of the star duo.
