Arsenal fans may have been humbled by Crystal Palace today, but the fans aren’t interested in swooping for the Eagles’ star man Wilfried Zaha. The Ivorian forward, according to The Daily Mail, is going to be allowed to leave Selhurst Park should their £80 million valuation of the player be met this summer and Arsenal are interested.
Arsenal are interested in signing Palace forward Wilfried Zaha. Palace want just £80m for the player….

The Gunners have a serious lack of an out-and-out winger in the squad, and Wilfried Zaha would be absolutely perfect. However, the Ivorian has been kicking about in the Premier League for a long time and with his level of experience and ability, he will not come cheap. The Palace man is certainly one of the best in the league, and with a move in the summer, he’ll be playing European football next season.
Unai Emery will know what he wants and whilst he’ll be working on a budget, should he want Zaha there is no reason why he can’t become the Spaniard’s latest addition to The Emirates this summer. The Gunners will be desperate for some summer reinforcements and whilst the fans will trust Emery to get it right when the window opens, they aren’t all convinced that Zaha is the man for them.

I don't want Zaha, @Arsenal should go for Nicholas Pepe

80m is rather high, we can pay for Pepe

The Gunners absolutely love the idea of bringing in a new ball carrying winger, but for the price of £80 million Zaha is not the one.
