Arsenal Line Up £35 Million Bid For Wilfried Zaha

ARSENE WENGER wants Wilfried Zaha to replace Alexis Sanchez.

Arsenal are lining up a £35m bid to sign Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace as a potential replacement for Alexis Sanchez, according to reports in the British media.

Nevertheless, though the 25-year-old hasn't showed any signs of desire to leave Selhurst Park, a move up north might end up being an upgrade, especially with Sanchez's situation looking rather hopeless. He has tallied two goals in his limited time on the pitch for a poor Crystal Palace side.

Palace headed into the global break rock bottom of the Premier League despite Zaha's displays and are effectively seven points from safety given their goal difference.

Should he be willing to leave, Arsenal won't be the only interested team to bid for him, as Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is thought to be an equally great admirer of him.

Former Gunners captain Tony Adams last week urged Wenger to sell Sanchez in January to avoid losing him on a free next summer.

Last summer, he was also strongly linked to Manchester City, who could try again to sign him in January.

Tottenham were tracking Zaha's progress since returning to Palace from Manchester United permanently nearly three years ago. The Eagles have scored just four goals all season.

The Chilean brings flair, brings goals, and instills fear in defenders, while also having the character of a born victor, and while Zaha is talented, he isn't a scratch on Alexis.
