Crystal Palace legend John Salako believes Wilfried Zaha should be allowed to follow his dreams of playing in the Champions League.

The Ivory Coast international has reportedly told Palace chiefs that he wants to move on this summer.

Zaha has made a name for himself at Selhurst Park after making his debut for the club in 2010.

He returned to the Eagles after a spell at Manchester United and he continues to lead the line for the club in the Premier League.

Boss Roy Hodgson had been hoping to build his team around him next season but Salako believes he should be allowed to try and conquer Europe.

‘The boy has just got incredible talent and incredible physicality,’ he told The Crystal Palace Fans Show.

‘Whenever I work with him, I am blown away; the world’s his oyster! I think for him, now, if he does want to play in the Champions League and see how far he can fly, then I totally, totally respect and love that.

I think he’s ready and he would be brilliant.

‘All the fans would love it if he wants to stay at Crystal Palace for another year but the boy is an incredible talent and for me, as hard as it is for me to stay this: go spread your wings, fly and see if you can touch the stars.

‘If it does not work out, then come back because we will welcome him back with open arms.’
