Premier League club Crystal Palace are reportedly weighing up a move for Ivorian winger Jeremie Boga, as a potential replacement for his compatriot Wilfried Zaha.

According to Sky Sports, Zaha is determined to leave Selhurst Park during this summer transfer window and has several potential suitors, including Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund.

Should Zaha leave the Eagles, Sassuolo wide man Boga is seen as an ideal replacement, though the London side will face some very stiff opposition to sign the former Chelsea youth product.

Napoli have already offered £27m for Boga, while Rennes tabled a £20m offer earlier this week. Atalanta and Bayer Leverkusen are also set to enter the bidding, with Sassuolo asking for more than £30m.

The Neroverdi are confident they can secure a big fee for Boga, whom they bought from the Blues for just £3.5m in 2018.

The Ivorian has become one of Serie A’s most impressive attackers, having racked up 11 goals and four assists for his club in 2019-20.

Boga previously had loan spells with Rennes, Granada and Birmingham before moving to Italy two years ago.
