Wilfried Zaha: I need to leave Crystal Palace

Wilfried Zaha is ready to leave Crystal Palace at the end of this season.

Zaha wants to leave Crystal Palace - and pursue his dream of playing in the Champions League.

He told the Daily Mail: “I'm too ambitious. And not ambitious just to play for a top club, but to win things at club level and with the Ivory Coast.

“For me to be better, to achieve what I know I am capable of, I have to aim to play at the very highest level, to win trophies.

“I'm blessed to have come this far in my playing career. But I feel like there is so much more I have to offer.

“I have to experience the Champions League. I just need the opportunity, that's it. And I'll do the rest."

Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund were keeping tabs on his situation last summer, while Tottenham are known to be long-term admirers.
