Report: Arsenal want 28-year-old attacker whose club are prepared to cash in on

Arsenal are reportedly interested in trying to sign Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha.

According to 90min, the Gunners are reigniting interest in the 28-year-old after previously wanting him at the Emirates Stadium.

It is explained that Mikel Arteta’s side could make a move for him at the end of the season, but may need to raise transfer funds first with sales.

The report states that Premier League and London rivals Palace would be prepared to “cash in” during the summer window, as they are planning a revamp of their squad at Selhurst Park.

Additionally, there are no signs Tottenham or Chelsea will reignite interest in him, but clubs from France and Italy will be monitoring him.

Zaha, who earns £130,000-a-week (Spotrac), is the talisman at Palace that will soon be approaching his final two years of his contract at the club.

 

He’s a versatile forward that can play on the left or centrally, and he’s blessed with lightning speed and great trickery.

The Ivory Coast international has nine goals in just 22 Premier League appearances so far this season.

TBR’s View:

If Zaha is going to make a big money move, then surely this summer is now or never with his 29th birthday coming in November.

He’s been amazing servant for Palace with 385 appearances for the club, but neutrals have always wanted to see him test himself with a club higher up the Premier League.

As it stands, Arsenal aren’t competing with the best in the division, but they are far too big a club to be quiet for too long.

The Gunners needs an extra spark to their squad, and Zaha would be the type of signing to raise a few eyebrows.
