Arsenal to make £40m bid for Premier League attacker?


Wilfried Zaha news

Arsenal in for Crystal Palace winger

Arsenal could reportedly compete with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace.

The Ivorian has been the standout performer with the Eagles for yet another season and he has recently suggested that he is too ambitious to stay put with the club.

According to The Mirror, the north London side have set their sights on pursuing the former England international as they seek to strengthen the wing department as well as increase on their homegrown players.

However, it is suggested that any deal may be dependent on the club's qualification to the Champions League through either a top-four finish or by winning the Europa League title.

Zaha, who has bagged nine goals and three assists during the current campaign, is said to have been earmarked as the Gunners' prime attacking target for the summer ahead of Ryan Fraser.

He was previously valued at around £75m by Palace but the valuation is likely to drop to the region of £40m with the winger likely to push through a summer departure.
