Saw this which was interesting;

Is this just lazy end of season/pre window journalism to fill up column space or is there something more in it?

If so are we looking possible alternatives if Zaha does leave?

Time will tell.

He was extremely good when he first joined them and I think would revive at Palace - though has been a bit injury-prone
Versatile re position and excellent in air 12/20 goals have come that way. Benteke has also scored 12 headers in past 3 seasons
West Ham only paid 7 million for him. one of their better buys

I really liked him, a Zaha type of player. Maybe a little less good on the ball, but stronger and better at getting in the box from the left wing position and scoring headers.

But the asking price was way over 30 million a while back. He had extended just last year until 2021. So, it doesnt matter that they bought him for just 7, they were asking for a lot more. He had become a national team player last year, playing posittions raging from left wing, right wing, striker and even right back.

With West Ham's terrible position this year and with the idiot Moyes managing things there (and not really liking Michail Antonio) could his price have gone down? Hopefully.
Not very young (28 yo), but still has 3 more great years in him. Wouldn't offer a longer contract though, as this type of big bulky player puts on fat very fast and their bodies become less adjusted for the high performance after the age of 30 (think Yaya Toure, even Palace's Bakary Sako)

20 goals and 10 assists in the last 2 and 1/2 years in the PL for Michail Antonio for West Ham (with quite some time spent as right back, a position from which he could not be very productive offensively)

Also true. But, in his defence, they've been minor injuries this year: 1 hamstring, 1 calf and 1 rib bruise.

The hamstring one has been bothering him since last year. I think he's going to have surgery to fix it for good. He's pretty huge and massive (Bakary Sako type). An extensive period without training could make him fat and unfit and then it might just be impossible to get back in shape.

However, real Palace interest is quoted (which is not a bad thing in my opinion):

Exceptional in the air and has a prodigious leap - scores with headers at back post - takes up a position at far post to meet a cross and I believe hearing towards the end of last year that 12 of his 18 W.Ham goals were headers.Terrific athlete and has a long throw in his armoury.
I am informed that he used to work as a lifeguard.

Him and everyone else who ever lived near a swimming pool. Have you ever been at the local pool and thought, that kid would have a hard time rescuing me from a puddle let alone the deep end at Cheam baths.

Couple of Hammers at work inform me that rumours about an upcoming Palace bid are getting louder and more insistent.

Blimey is Cheam Baths still there?

I remember going there in 1964 to watch the Dave Clark Five little knowing that the song that we all stamped our feet on the wooden floor to would later become our anthem

Think he’ll compliment us extremely well, winger or striker. Just what we need

I mentioned his versatility in being able to play out wide and as a central striker but I forgot to add that at W.Ham he filled in at right-back but his real asset is in an attacking role as sometimes he can be found wanting when possession is lost and he can switch off and not track runners.I am informed that although he is right-footed he has the ability to hit a cracking shot with his left-foot.A player Reading signed from Tooting & Mitcham.
