Tottenham signing Zaha could stop Palace selling Wan-Bissaka to bitter rivals Arsenal

Crystal Palace duo Wilfried Zaha and Aaron Wan-Bisskaka are reportedly attracting interest from across London ahead of the transfer window.

Crystal Palace are unlikely to lose both Wilfried Zaha and Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

They report that if Zaha raises them enough cash in the transfer market, then Roy Hodgson will be able to keep hold of young defender Wan-Bissaka unless an absolutely huge offer comes in.

Last month, the Independent linked Tottenham with a swoop for Zaha, as well as reporting his desire to play in the Champions League to take his career to the next level.

Meanwhile, TalkSport claimed in February that Arsenal were keen on a £40m swoop for Wan-Bissaka to improve their defence, which remains leaky under Unai Emery.

That means that the bitter rivals’ transfer business could well be interlinked this summer and given that Zaha is further along in his career than his young team-mate, he looks the more likely to leave.

 

It’s certainly easier to imagine Wan-Bissaka’s development being best served by remaining at Selhurst Park for at least another season.

But Zaha, who earns £130,000 a week at Palace (Spotrac), has really done all he can for his boyhood club and after his first big move away, to Manchester United, didn’t work out, he is surely ready to try again.
