FC Barcelona are fighting tooth and nail to formulate a competitive squad heading into next season. With a strong desire to compete for all trophies, recruitments in the summer transfer window are essential to get this club past the finish line once and for all.

However, economic constraints make it troublesome to simply obtain the ‘top dogs’ of the market. As a consequence, free agents are being carefully studied.

It is safe to say the Blaugranas have a deficiency of left-wingers. While Fati and Ferran are undeniably capable of occupying that position, dynamic dribblers and classic touchline wingers are absent in this position.

Moreover, the departures of both players are on the cards. To fortify the left wing, one of the names gaining relevance in the Barcelona sphere is Wilfried Zaha. According to Mundo Deportivo, the Catalans are among the many teams interested in snatching Zaha from Crystal Palace for free.

Zaha has attainted innumerable individual distinctions, including being repeatedly selected for the Crystal Palace POTY award and being listed in the Premier League Team of the Year.

With participation for the Ivory Coast national team in highly respected international competitions like the Africa Cup of Nations, the 30-year-old has nationwide recognition as well. Zaha is mostly known as a talented and skilled player who has considerably contributed to his side’s success.

Zaha is regarded as a gifted and skilled player who has made a big difference in his team’s success overall. He, a left winger with a great deal of dribbling panache, has racked up seven goals and two assists to help Crystal Palace secure their spot in the Premier League.

However, nearing the end of his contract, starting a new chapter remains his priority and the Ivorian winger now wants to advance further in his career. Several other clubs are also reportedly interested in acquiring his services, so it remains to be seen where he will end up.
