Wilfried Zaha has told Crystal Palace that he wants to leave the club this summer as he continues to be linked with a move to Arsenal, according to reports in the British media.

Sky Sports is reporting that the 26-year-old striker has told the club that he is keen on a move away from Selhurst Park this summer as the speculation about his future rumbles on.

The same report says that Crystal Palace have already rejected a bid of £40m from Arsenal earlier this month, and that the Gunners are expected to raise their offer in the coming days.

According to the same story, Zaha “made his feelings clear” to Crystal Palace after reporting for duty following his participation in the Africa Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast.

The same article also says that Gunners boss Unai Emery has been keen to sign Zaha since he scored in Crystal Palace’s 3-2 win over Arsenal back in April.

Arsenal are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they bid to strengthen their squad ahead of the new campaign.

The north London side, however, have so far only signed Brazilian teenager Gabriel Martinelli as they prepare for Emery’s second season in charge at The Emirates.
