Premier League club has decided to sell Arsenal’s long-term target

Wilfried Zaha’s transfer to Arsenal could be back on after Crystal Palace decided to cash in on the Ivorian forward.

His current deal with them expires in 2023, and they are struggling to get him signed onto an extension.

The winger was close to moving to Arsenal in 2019, but the Gunners signed Nicolas Pepe from Lille instead.

He has remained an enormous influence at Palace and has helped them to avoid relegation in recent seasons.

They might now have to plan for life without him, and he could eventually get his dream move to the Emirates.

Fichajes.net reported six days ago that Arsenal is expected to return for the AFCON player.

It claimed at the time that Tottenham also holds an interest in him, and they might join the race to land him.

The same outlet is now reporting that Palace has decided to cash in on him in the summer if he doesn’t put pen to paper on a new deal.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Zaha has been on our radar for a long time now, and the Ivorian is one player who can make an impact at the Emirates.

Mikel Arteta is bolstering his squad with some really exciting young talents around the world.

The Palace man is already 29, but his presence in our dressing room could be beneficial to the young players at the club.

  1. No thanks, don’t make the same mistake as signing pepe back in 2019.

    Arsenal should stick to “regeneration plan” and find a young tall CF who are roughly the same age of ESR, Ode, etc and know how to score like 15 goals every season minimum.

    We don’t need an old CF whose not very productive and has no resale value.

  2. Overrated, selfish, diving cheat….no thanks. His idea of a team sport is everyone in the team passing to him.

    Reminds me a lot of Ronaldo but with the goals or trophies.

    1. Wow you really can’t watch Wilfred Zaha play very much because you seem to know nothing about him except what you heard/saw edited on match of the day – which is all totally erroneous and hyper inflated hate from fans who don’t really know how seriously class this guy is (and referees) and sadly ex player pundits too …. he’s a massive talent who would be playing for England if he had come up through any of the top six academies … just a thought

  3. way too late in the day to return for this player who offers us functionally nothing more than we currently have on offer, from a goal-scoring capacity, and has a far more limited up-side moving forward, due to his age

  4. Great player will benefit any club that signs has played in ordinary palace teams and yet has always shone

    Arsenal will be lucky if they get him there are other clubs that will come for him

  5. Well, for the first time, I agree with ALL of the above pronouncements!!!!!!

    On another subject however, I read that Arteta thinks ESR would make a good center forward.

    Again I think he is desperate to bring Nellie back, but is throwing ESR under the bus if he plays him as a number 9.

    I think Arteta is devious enough to put ESR on the pitch, to placate the fans, but a number 9 he is not!!!

    He might make a good False 9, but he should not be put out as a replacement for Lacazette, NEVER.

    Just my view

    1. Tried that twice already I believe, and it failed both times. Once in Europa League against Emery and it failed, and again against City and it failed.

      Fairly Daft to try it a third time rather than try Pepe for the first time. ESR has been great on the wings or as a 10, so why change and ruin that?

      Reminds me of Wenger and when he would shoehorn Ramsey as a RW with underwhelming results.
