Former Crystal Palace star John Solako says he does not expect Wilfried Zaha to move to Chelsea because of Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Palace winger Zaha has been heavily linked to Stamford Bridge since the club’s transfer ban was halved.

However, Palace are reportedly holding firm on their £80m price for the attacker – and Solako does not think a deal will get done – but did suggest a swap.

“I honestly don’t think Wilf will go to Chelsea,” Solako told Love Sport Radio.

“Hudson-Odoi has come back and I don’t think they’ll want to hinder his development. But Willian and Pedro are getting on a bit, and maybe they’ll want someone to add to that.

“They could do a great little swap, though. Palace have got their eyes on Giroud, and that would be fantastic – Giroud plus money! If Palace get the right offer, they could be tempted.

“Wilfried definitely has the ability [to play for Chelsea], and no Palace fan can begrudge him if he wants that move.”
