Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson believes that Ivorian international Wilfried Zaha will be a wanted man during the January transfer window.

Zaha is enjoying his football at the moment having scored three goals in his last five English Premier League (EPL) matches for Palace.

Hodgson, who is a former England head coach, has stated that the London-based side will receive offers for the 25-year-old winger-cum-striker.

“You can't ever dismiss interest in any of your players," Hodgson told the media.

"Wilfried Zaha is an obvious name, but there are other players that I wouldn't be surprised if there were other clubs interested in.

"And we have to be prepared for that going into January.

Zaha was linked with a possible transfer to Tottenham Hotspur earlier this year, but Palace managed to keep him.

"If offers come along for players who are doing well for us and we are not particularly anxious to lose them," he continued.

"Then we will have to make decisions on what offers are to be turned down and what could be accepted."

Zaha and his Palace team-mates will face Stoke City in an EPL match on Saturday.
