Borussia Dortmund In For Crystal Palace Winger Wilfried Zaha
Crystal Palace could lose star man Wilfried Zaha following reports of interest from Borussia Dortmund, according to Sport Bild in Germany.
The former Manchester United winger is on the Bundesliga club's radar as a replacement for Chelsea-bound Christian Pulisic, who moves to Stamford Bridge in the summer. Zaha's performances this season have been crucial to Palace's survival efforts and have received plaudits from pundits and fans alike.
Despite Zaha's attacking efforts, his team are floating above the relegation zone. He revealed his frustrations after losing 4-3 to Liverpool at the weekend.

"You can't come to Anfield and score three goals but still lose," he said.
"We need to tighten up because some of the goals we conceded are just not good enough, so it's not a case of we performed well but were unlucky, we just need to be better, a lot better.
"We played well against a side that are not top of the league for no reason and we showed how dangerous we are when we are performing well, so we need to take that into the next game."
Zaha could follow a recent flurry of English grown players moving over to Germany and developing their game in the Bundesliga. Former Manchester City youth player Jadon Sancho is one of those names lighting-up the German top tier for Dortmund.
The winger has scored and assisted 14 goals in 18 Bundesliga games during this campaign.
Palace boss Roy Hodgson won't be keen to see his influential forward make the move across to continental Europe, but if Sancho's performances are anything to go by, is leaving the Premier League the right move for Wilfried Zaha? Let us know in the comments.
