Conflicting reports surround Arsenal Target Zaha

Depending on which reports you read, The Gunners fan and Arsenal transfer target, Wilfried Zaha, has either already met Alex Ferguson and the deal is done, or had no contact with Manchester United at all. A few days ago, United apparently offered around £5 million for the 20-year old winger, which was rejected outright.

Crystal Palace were looking for well over £10 million for the highly rated championship player, so the decision to turn down the offer was easy. United want to pay as little as possible up front and were offering staggered payments, but Palace wanted a good sum up front.

United to take advantage of Arsenal’s dithering over Zaha

Arsene Wenger has opened the door for Manchester United to secure the services of Arsenal transfer target and fan of the Gunners, Wilfried Zaha. Wenger has declared that he wants to get the Theo Walcott contract situation sorted out before he makes any new signings, so Alex Ferguson is preparing to launch a bid today or tomorrow for the Crystal Palace winger.

Ian Holloway is resigned to losing his young star in the summer but has already stated that he would like his future to be resolved so that it does not play on the mind of Zaha and affect his performances. United are willing to let the 20-year old stay at Selhurst Park for the rest of the season if Palace accept an offer of just £6 million, according to the Daily Mail.

Arsenal ready to make Zaha the next Gooner who is a Gunner

Arsenal set to make official bid for Zaha by AH

According to several sources including SkySports Arsenal are ready to open the bidding for Npower Championship and Crystal Place star Wilfried Zaha.

The 20 year old who recently made his England debut has been linked with a move to the Premier League for a while now and in the last few months he has been hanging on the edge of leaving with both Manchester United and Arsenal interested in securing the youngsters future.

Has Zaha snubbed Man United for Arsenal?

The papers have been full of stories about the Arsenal transfer target and Gunners fan, Wilfried Zaha. Most reports have suggested that Manchester United had agreed a transfer fee with Crystal Palace and personal terms with the 20-year old winger. This was not good news for Arsenal fans who thought that we would have the advantage in negotiations because of Zaha’s allegiance to the club.

Arsenal consider loan offer for Jenkinson

Carl Jenkinson is a lifelong Arsenal fan and must have been over the moon to sign a long term contract with the Gunners recently. His performances earlier in the season, before Bacary Sagna recovered from his injury lay off from a broken leg, gained plaudits from Arsenal fans and football journalists alike. It is hardly a shock, then, that Arsene Wenger is reluctant to grant a request from Crystal Palace to take the 20-year old right back on loan for the rest of the season.

Are Man United about to sign Arsenal target Zaha?

Arsenal may have missed out on another of their transfer targets. There are reports that Manchester United are about to agree terms with Crystal Palace over the transfer of their winger Wilfried Zaha. Tottenham seem to have accepted defeat in their challenge for the England international, and the silence from Arsenal has been deafening, leaving the way clear for Alex Ferguson to complete the signing.

Have Arsenal abandoned chase for Zaha?

There are two teams who are fighting over the signature of the powerful young winger, Wilfried Zaha, and Arsenal are not one of them, apparently. It had previously been a two horse race between the Gunners and Manchester United, but now Tottenham are the team hoping to seal the deal with Crystal Palace this month, if the report in the Daily Mail is correct.

Our North London rivals are thought to be willing to sign the player but allow him to remain at Selhurst Park for the rest of the season. This is ideal for the championship club, because he has become distracted by the uncertainty over his future and Palace need him for their push to the Premier league.

Arsenal risk losing Zaha to Man United

Arsenal were in pole position to sign Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace in January, but the imminent resolution of the contract extension with Theo Walcott means that we are not so desperate for the young winger. Palace have stated that they want to keep him for the season, but are resigned to losing him in the summer, and this puts Manchester United in a good position to seal the deal and snatch a major target from under Arsenal’s nose.

Has Zaha agreed to join Arsenal?

Wilfried Zaha is an Arsenal fan, and will soon be an Arsenal player, apparently. There are rumours that an agreement has been made between Arsenal, Crystal Palace and Zaha about his transfer to the Gunners in January, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

Palace rejected a bid of around £8 million from Manchester United, according to the Mail. With Alex Ferguson stepping up his pursuit of Christiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, United are unlikely to pursue the matter further, leaving just Tottenham challenging Arsenal for the 20-year old. Given that he supports Arsenal and that he wants to play in the Champions league, there is no way he is going to choose Spurs over us.

Arsenal risk losing Zaha to Man United

Wilfried Zaha is an Arsenal fan, and Arsene Wenger is a Wilfried Zaha fan. Add to that the fact (we hope) that the Gunners are set to end the penny pinching ways of recent years and compete with the bigger clubs when it comes to transfer fees and wages, we might have thought it was simply a matter of time before Zaha was an Arsenal player.

Alex Ferguson and Manchester United have different ideas, however, and are set to provide a stern challenge to Arsenal for the 20-year old Crystal Palace and England star. United are believed to be willing to agree a deal with Palace that allows them to keep the winger until the summer, whereas Wenger was hoping to prise him from Ian Holloway’s side in January.

Man United want to hijack Arsenal transfer of Zaha!

Wilfried Zaha is an Arsenal fan and was soon going to be an Arsenal player if newspaper reports are true. The Crystal Palace manager, Ian Holloway, complained again this week about Arsene Wenger. Holloway is upset about what he percieves as Wenger’s attempts to destabilise the young winger, even though Wenger has done nothing but answer a question posed by a journalist.

Palace have issued denials that Zaha will leave, but they have sounded increasingly desperate, suggesting that they knew they were going to lose the England international. Now it seems that Alex Ferguson has stuck his oar in and will offer Palace the opportunity to keep Zaha for the season if they agree to sell him to United.

Arsenal will sign Zaha in January!

Despite many statements by the Crystal Palace owners and manager stating otherwise, Arsenal are confident that they will be able to make Wilfried Zaha an Arsenal player. Not only that, they think that the deal might be done in the January transfer window rather than having to wait until next summer.

The 20-year old England international, who was born in the Ivory Coast, has made up his mind that he wants to come to the Emirates, apparently. The wing sensation is a long time fan of Arsenal, so it will be a dream move for him. It is not just for sentimental reasons that Zaha wants to make the journey from South to North London. In Arsene Wenger, he knows he will have a manager with a proven track record of giving opportunities to, and getting the best out of, young players.
