Chelsea will reportedly refuse to meet Crystal Palace's £80m valuation for winger Wilfried Zaha this month, with the club said to be put off by the price tag.

Chelsea have reportedly been put off a move for winger Wilfried Zaha because of the £80m asking price placed on him by Crystal Palace.

The Blues are able to make signings this January after the length of their transfer ban was decreased and reports suggest they are looking at adding a winger to their squad.

According to the Daily Express, Chelsea are interested in Zaha but would be unwilling to make a move for the player at his current £80m valuation.

The report adds that manager Frank Lampard has been given a budget of around £150m to spend this month.

Since he rejoined Crystal Palace in 2014, Zaha has managed 35 Premier League goals in 184 appearances for the Eagles.

Chelsea have also been linked with Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho this month.
