Arsenal don’t want 25-year-old African winger to replace Ozil, Sanchez – report
Arsenal aren't interested in signing Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, according to reports in England
Arsenal aren’t planning a move to sign Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, according to a report in the English media.
The Daily Star is reporting that the Ivory Coast international isn’t on Arsenal’s “agenda” to replace Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
The same article states that Arsenal are not expected to launch a big to sign the £35m-rated attacking midfielder, who has also been linked with Tottenham Hotspur.
According to the same story, Zaha could be available for a cut-price if Palace are relegated at the end of the 2017-18 season.
As a result, a move to sign the Ivorian attacker would make more sense at the end of the campaign given Palace’s current struggles in the Premier League.
Zaha has scored two goals in five appearances in an injury-hit start to the Premier League season for the 25-year-old winger.
The Ivory Coast international struggled to establish himself at Manchester United after Sir Alex Ferguson made the attacker his final signing at Old Trafford.
Zaha was unable to break into the Manchester United team under David Moyes and he returned to Palace in the 2015 summer transfer window.
Arsenal signed Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette and Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac in the summer.
