Wilfried Zaha has declared he is ready for a “new challenge” in the Premier League with the Crystal Palace forward attracting interest from Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

The 19-year-old has been in impressive form for Ian Holloway’s side this season, scoring five goals in 24 appearances in the Championship as Palace look to secure promotion to the top flight.

Zaha made his England debut in a 4-2 defeat by Sweden in October and he feels the time is right to leave Selhurst Park and move to a Premier League club in the January transfer window.

“I’ve played more than 100 first-team games and this year is crucial to develop my football career,” Zaha told the Mail on Sunday.

“I want to establish myself in the Premier League and in international football.

“I’ve played a lot in the Championship so having that new challenge in the Premier League, where everyone wants to be, would be great.

“To be honest, if I had the chance in January and Palace agreed, it’s something I’d want to go for.

“I’ve done a lot of learning in the Championship. Now I’m ready for the Premier League.”
