Abstract: Let $ {\mathcal S}$ denote the class of all functions $ f(z)=z+\sum _{n=2}^{\infty }a_{n}z^{n}$ analytic and univalent in the unit disk $ \mathbb{D}$. For $ f\in {\mathcal S}$, Zalcman conjectured that $ \vert a_n^2-a_{2n-1}\vert\leq (n-1)^2$ for $ n\geq 3$. This conjecture has been verified for only certain values of $ n$ for $ f\in {\mathcal S}$ and for all $ n\ge 4$ for the class $ \mathcal C$ of close-to-convex functions (and also for a couple of other classes). In this paper we provide bounds of the generalized Zalcman coefficient functional $ \vert\lambda a_n^2-a_{2n-1}\vert$ for functions in $ \mathcal C$ and for all $ n\ge 3$, where $ \lambda $ is a positive constant.
