Wilfried Zaha

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has sent a request to the club’s board amidst the transfer rumours linking him with a move away from Selhurst Park.

The Ivorian international attacker has been strongly linked with a move to North London giants Arsenal.

Recent reports claimed that the Gunners want to sign Zaha and the North Londoners are hoping to raise money for his transfer by selling the topscorer from last season Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Gabonese international Aubameyang has been strongly linked with a move to Premier League rivals Manchester United as well as clubs in the Chinese Super League.

On his part, Wilfried Zaha has told Crystal Palace to allow him join his boyhood club Arsenal this summer.

The former Manchester United winger requested for the Crystal Palace board to reach an agreement with the Gunners for his transfer this summer.

£80m Zaha had earlier revealed that he wants to leave Crystal Palace for a Champions League club.

Arsenal can’t offer Champions League football for the new season but Zaha is willing to jettison the idea of joining a Champions League club for his supposed dream move to the Gunners.

Zaha was in superb form for Crystal Palace during the just concluded season as the Eagles finished in 12th position.
