With 6 top clubs courting him, Lampard enters the race for Zaha.

Wilfried Zaha of Crystal Palace just got noticed by Chelsea as they just entered the race to land him. Chelsea's new coach, Lampard has indicated interest in getting the 26-years-old Ivorian international to his club and have him wear the Blues jersey.
Everton has also in the last 72 hours entered the race and this now makes the total number of clubs seeking the player to be at Seven.

But Chelsea cannot land him, at least not yet

Now the twist is that, Chelsea who presently have been slammed with a two-window transfer ban may not be getting their wish of signing Zaha. A ban that will be on until the summer of 2020.
Their chances are unlikely and even though the Blues have approached the Court of Arbitration for Sports to overturn the ban, they have very little chance of having that work in their favour.

Arsenal has been the highest bidder for the player and more so, the player has a thing for Arsenal and looks forward to join the gunners but his present club have rejected two bids from them.
The valuation on Zaha still stands at £80m and Crystal Palace seems not be be shifting grounds as they believe any club that wants the player should be able to come up with the right price or close to it.

This shows how good Zaha is. It will definitely increase he's price tag.

He is good and that is why Crystal Palace is not letting him go at a low price. Arsenal seems to be at the forefront of landing him though.
