'Still do': Arsenal could reportedly make last minute move for 29-year-old, he's a big Gunners fan
The 29-year-old has started the season for Palace in brilliant form as he has bagged three goals in as many games.
And as the winger is apparently on Arsenal’s radar, they could make a late move for him as we head into the final days of the window.
Zaha is a big Arsenal fan
Back in 2017, the journalist asked: “Team you supported as a kid?”
Zaha responded: “Arsenal. Still do.”
Mikel Arteta has been in the market for another wide player after missing out on Raphinha to Barcelona earlier in the summer.
Wolves have reportedly priced the Gunners out of a potential deal for Pedro Neto and it seems that Zaha is a possible alternative.
The Ivory Coast international has been excellent for Palace in the Premier League and seems destined for a move to a big club at some point in his career.
The fact that Zaha is an Arsenal fan will be a big boost to Arteta’s chances of signing him.
And with just one year remaining on his contract, Palace may be forced to sell in the near future.
But as he is such a key player for Patrick Vieira’s men, it remains unclear whether the Eagles will be willing to let him go. Especially this late on in the window.
Zaha would certainly provide quality and depth across the Arsenal front-three. He mainly operates from the left-wing but has shown he is capable of playing as a centre-forward and right-winger too.
