Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha could represent Great Britain at the Olympics

Liverpool, West Ham, Sunderland and Newcastle target Wilfried Zaha has been shortlisted for Team GB’s Olympic football squad.

The 19-year-old Crystal Palace forward enjoyed a fantastic season with the Eagles, scoring nine goals and winning the Championship young player of the year award.

The club have confirmed that he is in the initial 35-man squad that will be trimmed in early July down to 18.

Any Premier League side wanting the player will have to pay a sizable fee with Zaha tied down to a five-year contract at Selhurst Park.
