Boost for Arsenal as attacker still refuses to commit to his present club

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their pursuit of long-term target Wilfried Zaha as he is no closer to extending his stay at Crystal Palace.

The winger has been on Arsenal’s radar for several seasons and continues proving he is a top Premier League star.

Palace wants him to stay beyond his current deal and they have offered him an extension to his terms.

The contract expires at the end of this season and they desperately want him to confirm he is staying with them by signing on the dotted lines.

However, a report in The Sun reveals the winger has not extended his stay. He is instead looking to wait until the end of the season.

It claims he wants to see where the team will finish this term before he decides to stay or leave.

This comes as a boost to Arsenal and they can begin talks with his entourage to inform them of their intention to sign him at the end of this season on a free transfer.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Zaha is at the peak of his career now and is standing out in the Palace team.

His experience will help us if he makes the move to the Emirates, but it is hard to see him agree to join us if we do not guarantee him a pivotal role in the team.

  1. I would welcome this transfer, as he is a top class player, who would compete with Martinelli for that spot in the team.

    1. For free ken or a small fee, i would take him. I sometimes think he flatters to deceive but he does have some qualities.

        1. An irrelevant question Ken, as he will not be of any interest at all to us.

          Remember, I live in Croydon and know without doubt several key facts about his life style and I know for a definite fact that MA will shun him like the plague.

        2. Ken, i think he is worth maybe between the 100k and 200k but probably somewhere in the middle to lower.

  2. Makes a lot of sense but I just can’t see it ever happening. This is going to just be one of those players we were forever linked with and never signed!

    In other news: Saka Zinchenko and Elneny all pictured in training. Timely boost indeed. 💪🏾

  3. Zaha is the new always on his way to Arsenal Transfer rumour like it used to be with the likes of : Bezema, Philipe Melo, M’vila, Draxler, Jan Huntelaar, etc
    It seems like we have been interested in Zaha for more than 10 years now..
    😊🤣

  4. Unfortunately the Zaha ship has sailed. He nolonger fits the profile of players (age, mentality) Arsenal and Arteta are seeking, in my opinion.

  5. Good player, when he wants to be, but I think his ego might upset the current chemistry in the dressing room.

    Same problem as Auba, Ozil, David Luiz, and others Arteta had to get rid of.

    Would prefer the young Ukranian as the winger to spell Saka, and Gakpo as a number 9, to help take some weight off Jesus.

    Still need that DM for when Partey needs a rest.
    Would Savic from Lazio (with Lokonga thrown in as a make weight) be a good DM?

    Possible $150m cost for these three,
    So would Kroenke sanction that kind of money, specially since KSE face a $500M fine for the Rams move to LA

    An Interesting January!!.

    I wonder if the Kroenkes are fattening up Arsenal (Possible champions league spot next Season) ready for a sale to some oil rich Emirate say Kuwait or perhaps a Hedge fund like “Topiary Robber Barons”

    Question: Turner is currently injured, so who would be the keeper if Ramsdale gets injured too?
