Wilfried Zaha replies when asked about Arsenal’s interest
Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha opens up about his future at Arsenal
Wilfried Zaha has admitted that he doesn’t know whether he’ll move to Arsenal this summer.
The Gunners are thought to have made an opening bid for the Ivory Coast international in the summer transfer window as Unai Emery looks to bolster his attacking options.
Reports in England suggested that Crystal Palace have rejected Arsenal’s bid out of hand as the Eagles look to retain their services of their prized asset.
Zaha has previously spoken of his desire to sample European football, with Arsenal set to compete in the Europa League next term after reaching the final in Baku last season.
The Palace winger is currently on international duty at the African Cup of Nations with the Ivory Coast ahead of the new Premier League campaign.
Asked about a potential move to Arsenal in the summer transfer window, Zaha told BBC Sport as quoted by Metro:
“I don’t know, we’ll see in the future.
“I have no comment on it. The only thing that’s on my mind now is trying to win this cup. I’m fixated on how far we go in the tournament.”
Arsenal finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season after the Gunners ended up behind Chelsea FC and Tottenham Hotspur in the top-flight standings.
The north London side lost 4-1 to Chelsea FC in the Europa League final in Baku to miss out on the chance of qualifying for the Champions League by winning Europe’s second tier competition.
