The transfer window closed over a month ago and the January window seems like an age away, so it’s strange to see Premier League sides talking about who they want to sign. However, that’s exactly what a number of Arsenal fans have been doing as they all want to see Wilfried Zaha brought in.
Arsenal should do everything we can to sign Wilfred Zaha in January. Top quality player. Will instantly give us a different dynamic. He almost single handedly carries Palace. Has everything that we need – Pace, power, 1 V 1 dribbling. Also is a huge goal threat. Love him.

The Ivorian attacker is arguably the best player in the Premier league who doesn’t play for a top six side and The Gunners would be keen to see that change and snap him up. His ability to take defenders out of the game, score goals and create assists out of nothing makes him dangerous and his ability was on show on Saturday as he scored a sublime solo goal against Huddersfield, helping Crystal Palace to a 1-0 away win.
The ex-Manchester United man has the ability to play on both flanks, behind the striker and as a frontman himself and The Emirates could do with having a flair player like him who can step up and shine to get the fans off their feet. it would cost a bomb to bring him to North London, but he would quickly earn that money back for the supporters with his dominant displays and goalscoring nouse.
You can read The Gunners’ verdict on Zaha here:
I completely agree, but what do people mean by power? Never understood this term for footballers. I can see “power” in a Xhaka, Toure, or Vieira, but not in a winger.

He'd be such an ideal signing. A front 3 of auba, laca and zaha would terrify any defence!

Sign Zaha and Doucoure then sell Ramsey….we good

Agree with this 100%. Add him and a top quality CB in summer, we're back in business.

Agree should have signed him ages ago

He’ll be a great signing

It’s so obviously glaring us in the face that you know we will never ever sign him.

The fans are pretty unanimous in their wishes to sign the Ivorian, but it looks like one of those moves that won’t be able to happen anytime soon if ever.
