Swapping Zaha with Dortmund sensation Jadon Sancho would soften blow for Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace must push to swap for Jadon Sancho.

Wilfried Zaha of Crystal Palace reacts during the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Arsenal at Selhurst Park on December 28, 2017 in London, England.

Keeping hold of Wilfried Zaha is not going to be easy for Crystal Palace this summer amid interest from Everton and Tottenham.

German giants Borussia Dortmund are also keen, with German newspaper Bild reporting they want to offer a player plus swap deal involving Andre Schurrle.

Schurrle's stock has probably never been lower than it is now, and Palace might want to consider alternatives... and demand Jadon Sancho instead.

Sancho is England' next sensation in waiting, swapping Manchester City for Borussia Dortmund last summer.

The 18-year-old was given Dortmund's number seven shirt and has already played and scored for their first team.

A future England international, Sancho is a special talent, who Dortmund have really high hopes for.

If Palace can get him in return for Zaha, it would be a fantastic coup, landing a star of the future with his best years ahead of him.

Sancho could be convinced by Zaha's path to stardom, with the way Palace have enabled him to develop with regular football.

Dortmund would not want to let him go easily, and if Palace demanded this deal, it would be a real test of how much the Germans really want Zaha.

With the added bonus of Zaha not playing for a Premier League team too, getting Sancho back would be a best case scenario for the Eagles.
