Marseille are ready to offer Wilfried Zaha a move to the south of France when his contract expires in 2023 with the Crystal Palace star considering the possibility of playing abroad, according to 90 Minutes.
Talks between Palace and Zaha over a new deal have not progressed, with the 30-year-old set to leave Selhurst Park for the second time in his career.
The Ivory Coast international knows this could be his last chance to find a club that can offer him Champions League football, a competition he has never played in.
Zaha moved to Manchester United in 2013 but the move fell through and he ended up playing just four times for the Red Devils.
The clubs that can offer him Champions League football this time are limited. In England, Chelsea considered a move for him last summer and are still interested, but RB Leipzig’s Christopher Nkunku and AC Milan’s Rafael Leao are their main attacking targets.
Arsenal have also had a long-standing interest, but at 30, it is unknown whether Gunners bosses Edu and Mikel Arteta consider Zaha to be the right fit.

It means a move to continental Europe is looking an increasingly likely option for Zaha, with Marseille the latest club to make contact ahead of a pre-contract offer in January.
Marseille are currently fourth in Ligue 1 but are confident of finishing in the top three this season. They are not the only French club eyeing Zaha, with Paris Saint Germain and Monaco also showing interest.
Sources have also told 90min that Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig are also assessing Zaha’s situation, both of whom could likely offer first-team football next season.
