Wilfried Zaha

North London giants Arsenal have made Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha their top transfer target this summer as they try to sign players ahead of the new season billed for August.

The Gunners recently firmed up their interest in Zaha with an offer which was turned down by the South Londoners.

Crystal Palace rejected the opening offer of £40m from Arsenal as the club is holding out for at least £80m to grant the exit craved by their prized asset Wilfried Zaha.

The Ivorian international had previously talked about how he supported Arsenal as a youngster.

A dream move to Arsenal is the target for Zaha but Crystal Palace expect him to maintain his professionalism after the aforementioned bid was turned down according to the publication from the Daily Express.

Wilfried Zaha came through the ranks at Crystal Palace before he made his debut for the club.

The 26-year-old joined Manchester United in 2013 but his move to Old Trafford proved to be unsuccessful.

He returned to Crystal Palace in a £6m deal in 2015 and he has been a key player for the Eagles since then.

Zaha scored 10 goals and also added five assists for Crystal Palace during the last Premier League campaign which ended in May.
