Zaha’s time with Crystal Palace

After struggling to make it with Manchester United, Wilfried Zaha returned to Crystal Palace on a permanent basis in February of 2015.

The Eagles are believed to have paid around £3.45m to resign Zaha.

In total, Zaha has played a whopping 323 games across all competitions for the Eagles, in which he has scored 53 and assist 65.

The 2018/19 campaign saw the forward net 10 and assist 10 in 36 Premier League outings.

Arsenal bid for Zaha

After another solid season with Palace, Zaha appears to be attracting some attention from Arsenal.

It was reported earlier this month that the Gunners had bid around £40m for Wilfried Zaha.

That bid is said to have been rejected with The Times reporting Palace value the Ivorian closer to £80m.

Zaha’s brother then spoke out about the bid and claimed it was his brother’s dream to play for Arsenal.

Zaha is currently on international duty with the Ivory Coast.

They will face Mali on Monday. Ahead of that game, Zaha was asked to comment on the alleged bid from Arsenal but he declined to give anything away:

 “I have no comment on it [Arsenal’s bid].

“The only thing that’s on my mind right now is trying to win this cup [Africa Cup of Nations].”As quoted by the Mirror.
