Wilfried Zaha is now affordable for Arsenal if they are interested

The Sun claims that Crystal Palace will accept a bid of around £30 million for Wilfried Zaha and this might be good news for Arsenal.

The Ivorian is a childhood Arsenal fan and the Gunners wanted to sign him last summer, but they were put off by the Eagles huge asking price.

He has endured a tough season for Palace and he looks set to leave them according to the report.

It claims that the 27-year-old is ready to change teams again after previously leaving them to join Manchester United and they are ready to cash in on him now so that they can make funds available for their own summer business.

He currently earns £130,000 a week and will be 28 before the end of the year, which makes now the perfect time for him to leave Selhurst Park, but Palace is reportedly struggling to find a buyer.

Arsenal has moved on from wanting to land him after they signed Nicolas Pepe from Lille last summer.

However, they still have the need for more quality backups and Zaha could yet prove to be a valuable addition to Mikel Arteta’s team.

The Gunners will compete in four competitions next season and they will want to win at least one of them as well as qualifying for the Champions League and Zaha can help.

    I don’t think arsenal will go for him again except the William’s deal falls through.

  2. Sue says:

    Best of luck to him, wherever he ends up! Pity it won’t be with us….

  3. Achana jb says:

    Zaha is a good winger from left or right for Gunner and he is ahead of William arteta should bring him instead of bringing 32yrs old to the club Zaha can play for more than five years.

  4. Reggie says:

    No thank you we have a better player in Pepe and its not wingers we need.

  5. ACE says:

    Zaha again? LMFAO

    AFC desperately need to
    upgrade the talent @ CB,
    CM & AM yet the entirety of
    the speculative transfer kitty
    should be used an OVERRATED
    player in a position of little need?

    Willian may be a few years older
    than Zaha but the Brazilian is a
    much better player IMHO.

      Why do the press insist that clubs still want players because they went in for them a few years ago this is a new manager with different ideas

  6. Uzi Ozil says:

    I have never been a fan of Zaha. Even when he was at Manchester United…. I wish him well wherever he ends up.

  7. Wenger91 says:

    Strangely I prefer Willian although he is older than Zaha, maybe because he is more experienced and he will be welling to stay in the bench.

  8. Mogunna says:

    We made that choice a year ago by signing Pepe instead and Nelson is also there as Aiba who can play there to leave laca or Nketiah in center

  9. Mogunna says:

    If we sign a RW we must dsell Pepe and bring Sue’s fav; Traore

  10. Raheem says:

    £30m? a bargain for us. He will bring @ least 10goals, 5 penalties and good depth. He can help break down deep lying teams. More goals for arteta and more options of formation tinkering

  11. Mogunna says:

    Im surprise to see Man U on Sancho and not Traore, i wish we signed him.

    I would sell pay anytime to sign Traore.

    My wish list is
    Traore
    Koulibaly
    Havertz
    Partey

    If we want to win titles we must strenghen team.

    Sell xhaka, torreira, Luiz, Sokratis, Mustafi, mikky, Elneny Torreira, GandouziHolding or Chambers who wont have enough play, Ozil, Laca, Pepe.

    Have to make choices. This will bring enough money to sign these players.

    Leno
    Bellerin Saliba Koulibaly Tiern …………………….Niles Partey
    …………………………Havertz
    ………..Traoré……..Auba……….Saka

    Now we can talk about titles; this is achievable with a board at work as all thede players are wanted; sell them, get rid of all that mediocrity & drama and start fresh…

    That’s not at all where we going signing Luiz

      You think, you’re still playing FIFA pro games, we are talking of reality here. How on earth will a club sell all the back ups, What about injuries to key players, thank God, You’re not the coach.

    2. Elkaissi says:

      Lol.. funny comment. You sell everyone and have who left in your team?? You’re funny dude. Wake up

  12. Mogunna says:

    Does look as an Arsenal team

  13. gunnerforlife says:

    I would prefer Willian to Zaha, because of his experience, winning mentality and the ability to play across the front 3. Arteta probably has a 4-3-3 formation in mind if he is signing Willian, as the Brazilian is adept at different formations and positions.

  14. Alan B'stard M P says:

    Zaha excellent

  15. Stewart Macintosh says:

    if he is so excellent why is the price dropping and the demand is not there (if news stories are to be believed)? Besides, Arsenal has to sort out the back and the middle.
