'Pepe is clear': Arsenal fans react as Wilfried Zaha prepares to leave Palace
Another summer transfer window, and another Wilfried Zaha to Arsenal rumour for us all to contend with.
Of course, this is not the first time Zaha has apparently asked to leave. Nor is it the first time Arsenal have been linked with his signing.
The winger is said to be a fan of the Gunners. However, Palace have been known to dig their heels in when it comes to Zaha.
But Goal have reported that Palace may accept around £40m. That fee is much cheaper than previous years, given Steve Parish has demanded north of £80m previously.
Naturally, Gunners fans have been discussing the latest Zaha links on social media. And while some would still like Zaha, it seems plenty feel like they’ve been here before.
Arsenal fans discuss potential Wilfried Zaha signing
This isn’t the first time Arsenal fans will have spoken about Zaha. As some of the comments suggest, some Gunners feel the link is about as common as the Manchester United and Jadon Sancho talk.
But at £40m, could this finally be the summer that Arsenal do wind up signing Zaha from Palace?
Here’s what some Gunners fans have had to say on Twitter about the latest speculation surrounding Wilf Zaha.
I’ll take Zaha at Arsenal he’s still good https://t.co/VkZJeyWrSj

The true beginning of summer is not the solstice, it’s Zaha requesting a transfer from Palace and being linked to Arsenal https://t.co/XFy6c8zo88

Wilfred is a very talented footballer no doubts, but his place is already filled by saka, martinelli & pepe sometimes smith rowe too. All players r younger than wilfred certainly arsenal won’t buy him. We need playmakers.
