Nonetheless, the Ivory Coast international has been on an impressive form in the last couple of years, gaining the attention of several top clubs.

With his contract expiring at the end of the season, domestic and foreign clubs are queueing up to sign the versatile striker.

According to TuttoJuve, the Bianconeri and Roma are both in the fray, but will face stern competition from Barcelona as well as Premier League sides.

The source claims that Zaha hasn’t yet decided whether he’s willing to leave England or not, but Juventus would be a tempting destination if they can offer him Champions League football next term.
