According to Football Insider, Wilfried Zaha of Crystal Palace is a target for Arsenal. The Gunners are apparently working on a contract offer for the Ivorian player.
Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal’s north London rival, came close to signing Zaha twice under his management. According to the aforementioned publication, the race to sign the Ivorian striker has heated up with interest from Chelsea and Ligue 1 club Marseille.
This summer will mark the end of Zaha’s current contract. The national of Ivory Coast apparently wants to leave his current club and try out for a new one. The winger has been given a four-year, £200,000 weekly contract by Palace.
However, Football Insider reports that he will most likely seek fresh opportunities elsewhere this summer. Zaha has played in 26 games for Palace in the Premier League this year, contributing to 7 goals and 2 assists.

The Gunners might benefit from the Ivory Coast international’s talents in the next 2023–24 season. This season, under Mikel Arteta’s leadership, Arsenal has enjoyed one of its best seasons in the Premier League in quite some time.
The Gunners are chasing Manchester City for the league championship and are now in second place. The team from north London is currently second in the English league, one point behind the leaders.
Sunday, May 14th, sees Arsenal hosting Brighton & Hove Albion at the Emirates. With just three games remaining, the Gunners need a victory over the Seahawks to have any chance of beating City for the league championship.
Whether Arsenal can win their first league championship since their legendary undefeated 2003–04 season under Arsene Wenger is still up in the air.
