Wilfried Zaha says that he is "too ambitious" to stay at Crystal Palace as he reveals his desire to join a club competing in the Champions League.

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has put a number of clubs on red alert by admitting that he is ready to leave Selhurst Park for a second time.

The Ivory Coast international is a regular in the gossip columns, being linked with the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Despite selling Zaha back to Palace after just a year in their ranks, United are considered to be the frontrunners to land their former player.

Two weeks on from verbally committing his future to the Eagles, the 26-year-old has now revealed that he wants another go at making it at the highest level.

"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," he told the Daily Mail.

"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."

Zaha has a combined 48 goals and assists in the Premier League since returning to Palace, initially on loan, in 2014-15.
