Deal close: Arsenal send scouts to watch £70 million-rated forward

Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha according to reports in England, it is understood that the Gunners sent scouts to watch the 26-year-old play this season as they look to move for the player in the summer. 

Zaha is considered as one of the best players outside the top six teams and has been the talisman for Crystal Palace in the past few seasons. 

The Ivorian international has spoken about his desire to play for a bigger club in the nearest future and Arsenal are keen on signing him.

The major problem that the North London club face is the transfer fee as Zaha is valued at £70 million by Crystal Palace. It is understood that Arsenal are operating on a tight budget in the summer but the club could offload some players to finance the transfer. 

Zaha would bring a different dimension to the Gunners attack as he would provide a genuine wide threat unlike current options Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi.

Blessed with great pace and outrageous skill Zaha has all it takes to succeed at the Emirates under Unai Emery. 

This transfer is one to watch out for as it develops in the summer.
