Wilfried Zaha asks Crystal Palace to sell him to Arsenal – report
Wilfried Zaha is desperate to move to Arsenal this summer, according to a report in England
Wilfried Zaha has asked Crystal Palace to sell him to Arsenal this summer, according to a report in England.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Ivory Coast international is eager to secure a move to one of the Premier League’s top sides this summer.
The same article states that Zaha is a childhood Arsenal supporter despite growing up next to Selhurst Park in south east London.
According to the same story, the biggest question is whether the Gunners can afford Zaha’s transfer fee this summer.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that Palace aren’t under pressure to sell Zaha given that Aaron Wan-Bissaka is set to complete a big-money move to Manchester United.
The report goes on to say that Zaha has asked Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish to lower his demands so Arsenal can afford to sign the Ivorian winger.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery is thought to be a big fan of the former Manchester United winger as the Spanish head coach looks to bolster his attack, the story concludes.
Zaha scored 10 times in 34 games in the Premier League last season to underline his rising status within the English top flight as one of the best attackers.
Arsenal finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table in Emery’s first season in charge.
