Wilfried Zaha has told Crystal Palace that he wants to leave the club amid rumours that Arsenal are keen to sign him, The Times say.

90 Minutes have reported that Arsenal have reignited their interest in snapping up Zaha this summer, in what seems to be a never ending transfer saga.

Arsenal have been linked with the winger over numerous years, but it is claimed that he is still on Mikel Arteta’s side’s radar.

And Zaha has reportedly told Palace that he wants to leave, with the club now willing to listen to offers.

The Eagles have previously taken a hard line stance with Zaha, which has made him too expensive for any interested buyer.

But the Times now say that a bid of £35 million would be enough to convince Palace to sell to winger, who Jurgen Klopp called ‘world-class’ in 2019 (Metro).

In budget?

That could take him to within Arsenal’s price range, but whether they will actually submit a bid remains to be seen.

Edu and Arteta have targeted youngsters in the main this summer, who should have some re-sale value.

Zaha, at the age of 28, is unlikely to fetch much in the way of a return though.

And he would have to make a devastating impact right from the start at the Emirates Stadium, if he was to prove worth the transfer fee.
