French club Olympique Marseille has reportedly expressed interest in signing Wilfried Zaha, the veteran attacker from Crystal Palace. Zaha, who is considered one of the best wingers from Ivory Coast, has had a successful season with 6 goals and 3 assists in 25 appearances across various competitions for Crystal Palace. He has also made a mark at the international level, scoring 5 goals in 30 senior appearances for the Ivory Coast national team.
Zaha’s contract with Crystal Palace is set to expire in June, making him a free agent. Marseille is said to be making their move to secure his services and is hopeful of offering him Champions League football next season, which could be an enticing prospect for the 30-year-old winger.

However, Zaha is currently sidelined with a groin injury that he sustained in a match against Leicester City on April 1, which could potentially impact his availability for Marseille or any other potential suitors. Despite this setback, Zaha’s talent and potential contribution to a team’s attack have not gone unnoticed, and Marseille is reportedly keen on acquiring his services.
It’s worth noting that Zaha has already turned down a significant offer from Al Ittihad, indicating his desire to explore other options and potentially play at a higher level. His performances for Crystal Palace have been noteworthy, and he made history by becoming the first player to score 50 top-flight goals for the club in a 2-0 win against Manchester City in October 2021.
As a versatile attacker with pace, skill, and goal-scoring ability, Zaha could be a valuable addition to any team, including Marseille, as they seek to strengthen their squad and compete at the highest level, including the prestigious Champions League competition.
Only time will tell where Zaha ultimately ends up, but with his contract set to expire soon and interest from clubs like Marseille, there could be an exciting transfer saga in the works for the veteran winger. Fans and football enthusiasts alike will be eagerly watching to see how the situation unfolds and where Zaha’s next destination will be.
