What Zaha told Crystal Palace about Arsenal move after returning from 2019 AFCON

Wilfried Zaha has told Crystal Palace he wants to leave the club amid interest from Arsenal, Sky Sports reports.

The 26-year-old forward made his feelings clear after returning to Palace, following his participation in Ivory Coast’s African Cup of Nations campaign.

Zaha scored twice, as the Ivorians went all the way to the quarter-finals, where they were eliminated by Tunisia.

The Eagles rejected a bid of £40m for Zaha from Arsenal earlier this month, but the Gunners are expected to raise their offer in the coming days.

However, if the Selhurt Park club prove tough to negotiate with, Unai Emery is believed to considering Gremio’s Everton Soares and Zaha’s compatriot Nicolas Pepe as options.
