Chelsea are looking to hijack Arsenal's move for Wilfried Zaha, while Everton are still in the mix, reports The UK Telegraph.
The Blues are under a two-window transfer ban, but would look to complete a deal for the Crystal Palace winger, after the end of the coming season.
The 27-year-old is said to be aware of their interest in him, although they have yet to make a concrete offer to the Eagles.
Arsenal have already tabled a bid worth £40 million for the player.
The offer was quickly rejected by Palace, who are looking to hold out for £80m.
As he is Unai Emery's top target this summer, the Gunners are expected to return with an improved bid in the coming days.
