According to reports, French Ligue 1 club Monaco could launch a bid for Ivory Coast international Wilfried Zaha in January.

London News Online reports that the club's sporting director, former Nigeria international Michael Emenalo, was in attendance at Crystal Palace's match away to Huddersfield Town earlier this month.

Emenalo reportedly kept a close eye on Zaha and the 25-year-old impressed, netting a wonder goal as the Eagles claimed a narrow 1-0 win.

Zaha recently committed his future to Palace, signing a new five-year contract in August, but Monaco are not strapped for cash following big money sales over the past 12 months.

The former Manchester United winger has scored three goals in five English Premier League matches this season and has firmly established himself as an integral part Ray Hodgson's plans at Selhurst Park.

Such is Zaha's importance that Palace haven't won a game without him since September 2016.
