If you were to believe all the transfer speculation doing the rounds, you’d perhaps think it is only a matter of time before Chelsea Football Club completes the signing of the Crystal Palace striker, Wilfried Zaha.

Indeed, here at Vital Chelsea, we’ve covered the speculation relating to a proposed deal with the following being a typical article: palace-want-how-much-for-chelsea-target.

However, it appears that the media could well have, as they say, been led up the garden path.

Following the 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion and when pushed on the subject matter, Frank Lampard is reported by

The Daily Star as having remarked about any proposed deal:

“I wouldn’t talk about Zaha.

“It’s not something I’ve considered. I won’t talk about him because he’s not our plans.

“If we have to do business we will do it behind closed doors aside to announcing who I want to bring.”

Which if, and we’ve no reason to suspect it isn’t, it will be a statement appreciated by those who frequent this site with a recent poll: a-straight-answer-80-million-for-wilfried-zaha showing that 69% of those who voted didn’t want Chelsea to pay an exorbitant fee for the Ivory Coast forward.

But we shouldn’t discount a deal being done, strange things happen in this sport of football as we’ve all come to appreciate.

  • Good. We really dont need any more inconsistent 2nd rate wingers. We already have more than our fair share. We need some proper talent to balance the youth. And seeing he will cost almost what we sold Eden for them c’mon guys. wheres the ambition?

  • You all need to calm down and understand Lampards statement and stop misinterpreting or misquoting it. He was asked about a deal to swap Giroud with Zaha. He said he had not considered that deal. He did not say Zaha is not in our plans but Zaha is not our Player which means he does not want to talk openly about other teams players which he should’t do . In fact he stated the transfer deals will be done in secrecy. That in itself proves even if he is interested, he would not be telling journalists. Zaha move is still on folks. Hate to break it to you.
