Chelsea have been linked with Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha this summer, and recent reports have claimed that the Blues could make a late swoop for the 29-year-old.

Zaha has started the season in fine form, and has already scored four goals in as many matches.

The Ivorian international has a year left on his contract with Crystal Palace, and is valued at £25m.

Amid the links with Chelsea and also Arsenal who are said to have strong interest in Zaha, the Crystal Palace star has said he has maintained his focus nevertheless.

Zaha said: “It’s not been difficult at all (to remain focused).

“I’ve just been focused on Palace and every game. So it’s not been difficult at all. I go into training, I get on with it and I enjoy it. So I’ve been focused.

“It’s massive, we’ve got a massive understanding everyone literally understands me. It’s different, it’s hard to explain but it feels like a family here. That’s the understanding we have.”
