Arsenal target asks club to let him leave this summer

Wilfried Zaha has asked Crystal Palace to listen to offers for his signature this summer.

The attacker has been on their books for much of his career, having returned to Selhurst Park after a poor spell at Manchester United.

He has been their main man, but he wants to join a bigger club now. Arsenal remains interested in a move for him even though their former player, Emmanuel Petit, has warned them against signing him via The Daily Mail. has handed them a boost by reporting that he wants to leave Palace in the summer and he has asked the Eagles to listen to offers for his signature.

Just Arsenal Opinion

This is another good chance for Arsenal to sign Zaha after they opted for Nicolas Pepe in 2019.

Pepe has been poor and should leave the Emirates in the next transfer window.

There is no better replacement than Zaha, even though he is much older now. We could even propose a swap deal with the Eagles by sending Pepe the other way.

If that doesn’t work, we can sell Pepe and use the money to acquire Zaha, who shouldn’t be too expensive anymore.

  1. He’s a versatile player, he could be one of the CFs we sign,

    I know a lot would say he’s almost 30, there are a lot of 30+ Players making the headlines , let’s have an open mind towards every player,

    Zaha still has 2/3 years of blistering strength to offer, if I were Arteta I’ll sign him for a reasonable price.

  2. Article is rather biased, not as good as Pepe and very over rated. Pepe hasn’t been poor, he hasn’t been used!!!!!!!!

    1. Fact!!if I remember correctly,I recently read that he played 600 minutes this season and most of them as a late sub and/or after not playing at all for a while.

  3. He should go to Newcastle Utd. He’d be perfect for their project. Him on the left, Aubameyang through the centre with Pepe or Mahrez on the right. Aubameyang, Pepe and Mahrez will be available in the summer and so will Raheem Sterling to compete with Zaha on the left. Add to that, all the mentioned players have PL experience.

    Newcastle can do a potential madness this coming summer if their recruitment is on point.

    I personally wouldn’t want any of them as I feel we can’t build longterm with them:
    – Pepe, been there, tried that
    – Aubameyang, been there, tried that
    – Zaha, too old
    – Mahrez, too old
    – Sterling, wages too high

    1. Zaha still remain one of the best forwards in premier league today and he is a match winner with too many potentials

  4. Premier league battle hardened, still think he has one or two good seasons left in him.

    Our project is now delicately poised, only a direct swap for Nicolas Pepe I would sanction at this stage.

    Then again Jon says am an armchair manager

  5. Reality says he is now 29 and having his first really decent , not great but decent, seaon in ages. He would be well advised to see out his PREM days at PALACE and stay the legend that most PALACE FANS ALREADY DEEM HIM.

    ITS ACADEMIC WHERE WE ARE ,IN ANY CASE AS THERE IS NO WAY MA will be interested in bringing this unreliable (over the years) and distinctly hot headed player to us.

    It ain’t gonna happen, peeps. All clued up Gooners know that!
