Juventus and Roma join the race for Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha

As the club continues to search the market for attractive new opportunities, Juventus came across the name of Wilfried Zaha.

The 30-year-old rose to fame during his early days at Crystal Palace, leading the Glaziers to promotion to the Premier League. In 2013, he became the latest player signed by legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

While his time at Old Trafford did not go as planned, he eventually returned to Palace in 2014 and has been with the London-based club ever since.

Nonetheless, the Ivory Coast international has been in impressive form in recent years, attracting the attention of a number of top clubs.

With his contract expiring at the end of the season, clubs from home and abroad are lining up to sign the versatile striker.

According to TuttoJuve, the Bianconeri and Roma are in the mix, but will face stiff competition from Barcelona and Premier League sides.

The source claims that Zaha has not yet decided whether he is willing to leave England or not, but Juventus would be a tempting destination if they can offer him the Champions League next season.

The former Man United star can play as a left winger in an attacking trident or as a centre-forward.

He is one of the few players to have represented two different national teams at senior level. He featured for England in two friendlies but then switched allegiances from him to the Ivory Coast after he was passed over by the Three Lions between 2013 and 2017.
