Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha is once again linked with several clubs as the transfer window has reopened. Roy Hodgson is unfazed over the exit rumors.

The transfer window has returned and so has all the rumors made a comeback. Several players have started to leave clubs in pursuit of more game time whereas few players are on the verge of signing new contracts with their respective clubs.

With some hitting peak form from the so-called smaller clubs, they are being tipped with moves to bigger clubs. One such player linked with a lucrative move is Wilfried Zaha. The Crystal Palace forward has hit top gear this season for the Eagles.

Cote d’Ivoire international, Zaha has scored 10 G/A in 14 Premier League games for Palace so far. His form has attracted the attention of French and Italian clubs, Paris St Germain and AC Milan.

Responding to the links Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson said to Sky Sports:

"There has been so much speculation regarding Wilf over the years that I tend to let those concerns disappear, as they often do.Wilf’s good and it doesn’t surprise me that there’s clubs out there who would like to sign him, but a lot of things have to be put in place before a player leaves a club.I’m just happy at the moment that Wilf is playing as he is, displaying his discipline and concentration and his passion for football and the club, and unless I’m given a reason to think otherwise, I expect that to keep going.(Via: Goal)"

Mauricio Pochettino took the reigns at PSG on Saturday after the club sacked Thomas Tuchel just after Christmas and just before New Year’s Eve.

He is said to be interested in acquiring the services of the former Manchester United player as Angel di Maria’s contract is set to expire in five months.

AC Milan are also preparing themselves for life after Hakan Calhanoglu, who will be a free agent at the start of next season.
