Wilfried Zaha

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has responded to the serious transfer rumours linking him with a move to Arsenal.

The Gunners want to sign Zaha this summer in their quest to add a winger to their playing squad between now and the rest of the season.

The man at the centre of the numerous transfer links to Arsenal, Zaha, is presently at the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt and he spoke to On Sports about the interest from the Gunners.

When asked about the much publicised Arsenal bid, Zaha didn’t say much before adding that we’ll see what the future holds.

The Gunners made an opening bid of £40m despite the fact that the North London giants have a £45m transfer budget to work with it this summer.

Wilfried Zaha has already told the club to negotiate his transfer with Arsenal but the Eagles are holding out for at least £80m which is two times the first offer made by the Gunners.

The Ivorian international is presently with his country in Egypt as they try to win a third AFCON title.

Zaha mentioned that his focus is solely on winning the ongoing AFCON despite the fuss on his Crystal Palace future at the moment.
