Zaha has rejected offers to extend his contract at Crystal Palace and could be allowed to leave in the summer.

There has been growing satisfaction around Selhurst Park that in as much as the Ivorian is still an important player, Patrick Viera has overseen the rise of young players like Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze.

Clubs interested in Zaha

The Evening Standard now reports that at least three Saudi Arabian clubs are looking to sign the 30-year-old winger, with Ronaldo's Al-Nassr in the mix.

Al-Hillal and Al-Ittihad are also in the race to sign Zaha, with Serie A Champions, AC Milan also interested.

He has been Palace's go-to player since a botched move to Manchester United during Sir Alex Ferguson's days. He has come close to leaving in recent times with the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea interested.

The Saudi Arabian government is making concerted efforts to make its league marketable as part of a long-term plan to bid for the 2030 World Cup.

There is a feeling that landing the top players might go a long way in promoting the brand image of the league.

Marcelo to reunite with Ronaldo

Sports Brief also reported on Marcelo's contract being terminated by Olympiakos after just five months, leading to speculation that he could be headed to Saudi Arabia.

Both the Greek club and the Brazilian were happy with the decision to end his deal there and added that he had received an offer from a 'foreign team.'

Renowned football journalist Fabrizio Romano recently commented on the links between Marcelo, Al-Nassr and superstar, Ronaldo.
