Arsenal are ready to reignite their interest in Wilfried Zaha.
According to The Express, Chelsea and Arsenal will battle it out for Crystal Palace star Zaha this January. Palace face another battle to keep Zaha after the summer transfer saga.
Arsenal wanted to sign the Ivory Coast international in the summer but Palace were refusing to sell. Instead, the Gunners signed Zaha’s international team-mate Nicolas Pepe. Now, they want the pair to reunite at The Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal and Chelsea in Zaha battle
Chelsea are also in the hunt for Zaha now that their transfer ban has been lifted. Frank Lampard wants the 27-year-old to add more firepower to their attacking options.
This season, Zaha has scored twice for the Eagles after withdrawing his request to leave the club. But with added interest in his signature, could he seek an exit again in the January transfer window?
Arsenal fans have mixed thoughts on signing Zaha. He is a proven performer in the Premier League but is he needed? Here are some tweets about it.
Zaha is a Gooner. Time to come in an save the club you love Wilf. You can be the new Ian Wright, Palace to Arsenal, local hero.

Zaha is so over rated. Has done absolutely nothing this year

Guys instead of bring Zaha, why shouldn’t we opt Everton Soarez. He’s 23yrs old and more talented

Zaha is the answer

Should have bought Zaha instead of Pepe. Instant PL experience and knows how to play against each defence in the PL week in week out. Fed up of getting players who need half a season or more to get going.
