Crystal Palace are fighting to keep their striker in Cote d’Ivoire’s Wilfried Zaha with a number of clubs chasing his signature.

According to Bild, Borussia Dortmund could cash in on Andriy Yarmolenko after just one season with the club as they look to raise funds to finance a move for the Ivoirian.

With West Ham United reportedly interested in the Ukrainian forward, reports suggest that the Irons are lining up a potential £20m move after missing out on Javier Pastore.

On the other hand, the new Dortmund boss Lucien Favre wants to bolster his attacking options and believes the Eagles forward is the man to help them challenge Bayern Munich at the summit of the German Bundesliga.

Moreover, Tottenham Hotspur have also reignited their interest in the Palace winger, but they are still some way short of Palace's £70 million valuation of their nippy winger.

The HITC website has it that Spurs failed with an opening offer of £12 million for the 25-year-old, who reportedly turned down a new deal to stay at Selhurst Park over the weekend.

Weekend reports revealed that Zaha has rejected a whopping new £125,000-per-week contract at Palace that would make him their top earner
