Chelsea are reportedly considering making a move for Crystal Palace starlet Wilfried Zaha in the upcoming January transfer window.
The Blues have been facing problems lately, mainly because of the lack of depth in their squad, and Antonio Conte is thus keen on adding more quality to his side.
The Italian tactician had voiced his concerns earlier regarding not having enough players to produce another successful campaign.

It was claimed that the defending Premier League champions are closely monitoring the wide-man, and are considering launching a bid for him once the transfer window re-opens in January.
The Ivory Coast international, despite Palace’s poor run of form, has been a standout performer for the club, and has caught the eye of multiple English elite, including the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham.
And though Spurs were previously favourites to land the 25-year-old, their interest in him has cooled off, which has left the Blues as the frontrunners for his signature.
However, it was also reported that the Stamford Bridge outfit might not go forward with this transfer in January, but eventually make a move for the former United winger next summer.
Meanwhile, Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson is said to be keen on holding on to his prized asset, even though the English tactician has admitted to the fact that “there will be interest in Zaha and other players in January”.
