Wilfried Zaha

Crystal Palace legend Nigel Martyn has given his verdict on the transfer rumours linking star player Wilfried Zaha to Premier League giants Arsenal during this summer’s transfer window.

In a chat with VouchersCode.co.uk, the former Crystal Palace goalkeeper admitted that it’s the right time for Zaha to leave the South London club.

Nigel Martyn is hopeful that the Eagles can hang on to their best player beyond this summer.

Crystal Palace have already lost the services of Aaron Wan-Bissaka who joined three-time European champions Manchester United.

Wan-Bissaka was confirmed as a Manchester United player earlier on Saturday in a £50m deal.

The 21-year-old has signed a five-year deal at Manchester United with the option of another year.

Another key player could leave Crystal Palace this summer with the aforementioned Zaha keen to join Arsenal this summer.

In a recent interview, Wilfried Zaha admitted that he supported Arsenal as a kid.

Recent reports revealed that the 26-year-old has told the senior club officials that he wants to leave Selhurst Park for Arsenal but the Eagles are reluctant to let Zaha end his second spell at the club this summer.

Crystal Palace have already slammed an asking price of £100m on him so as to ward off the interest of the Gunners.
