Wilfried Zaha has told Crystal Palace he wants to leave the club in search for Champions League football, The Daily Mail reports.
The Ivorian is said to have met with chairman Steve Parish after the final game of the season and expressed his desire to move on to play at ‘the very highest level’.
In an article published Thursday, Sportsmail are saying the 26-year-old is worried that the clubs asking price of £80million could affect his chances of a summer transfer.
Speaking a month ago, the former Manchester United man told the Mail: “I'm too ambitious. And not ambitious just to play for a top club, but to win things at club level and with the Ivory Coast.
“For me to be better, to achieve what I know I am capable of, I have to aim to play at the very highest level, to win trophies. I'm blessed to have come this far in my playing career. But I feel like there is so much more I have to offer.
“I have to experience the Champions League. I just need the opportunity, that's it. And I'll do the rest.”
Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United could all be options for Zaha, albeit Chelsea’s interest would depend on their impending transfer ban.
Chances of a return to United have increased since the permanent appointment of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the pair worked together at Cardiff in 2014.
Rumours suggest there is also interest from abroad, including the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Inter Milan.
