Zaha is a star player at Crystal Palace, and he has shown signs that he could perform at a higher level than Crystal Palace can currently offer. Emenalo watched Zaha score the only goal in Palace’s win over Huddersfield last weekend.

Monaco is looking for a new forward after Thomas Lemar joined Atletico Madrid in the summer.

Zaha signed a five-year deal recently to stay at Palace, despite being targeted by both Chelsea and Tottenham over the summer.

Monaco showing interest is likely to reignite interest from those clubs.

Monaco is suffering a slow start to the 2018/2019 season. Falcao scored a superb goal against Nimes in a game that only ended as a 1-1 draw. The team is currently 15th in Ligue 1.
