Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha wants to leave Selhurst Park this summer and achieve his dream of playing regular Champions League football.

The winger has been a standout performer for the Eagles this season, notching 10 goals and 10 assists in 34 Premier League games.

He further enhanced his reputation on Sunday with a blistering performance against Bournemouth , playing a part in all five goals as Palace won 5-3.

Zaha has hero status at Selhurst Park, having come through the ranks at the club and he returned home in 2015 following a tough spell with Manchester United .

But he has never hidden his ambition to succeed at a top European club, and has now revealed that he is ready to have a second go at making it at the highest level.

According to The Daily Mail , the Ivory Coast international met with Palace chairman Steve Parish this week and revealed his desire to seek pastures new.

He is intent on playing Champions League football, whether that be in the Premier League or elsewhere in Europe, with German giants Borussia Dortmund known to be interested.

Following this latest development, Palace have slapped on £80million price tag on Zaha, who is concerned that his value may put potential suitors off.

The winger is keen to have his future resolved before the Eagles stars return for pre-season duty, and Palace are seemingly ready to listen to offers.

Should the Selhurst Park favourite depart, the Eagles would prefer to invest the money in at least two new signings.

In a boost for Palace fans, Zaha’s departure is likely to mean full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has been linked with Manchester United, would remain in south London for at least another year.
