Arsenal to move in for signing of 26-year-old attacker who scored at Emirates last month

Arsenal are claimed to be lining up an offer for the signing of a winger who could replace the departing Aaron Ramsey in the squad ahead of next season.

Unai Emery has seen his side fail to finish in the top four of the Premier League, despite the fact that they were in a favourable position to end the campaign in a Champions League spot after playing all of their top six rivals before April.

Indeed, the Gunners looked to be on course to finish third in the league until that home game against Crystal Palace which saw them lose 3-2 at the Emirates stadium.

Wilfred Zaha was one of the players who scored for Palace in that clash and according to a report by the Sun, Arsenal are looking to sign the 26-year-old this summer.

The Ivorian star has once again been in brilliant form this season and attracted the interest of the Gunners, who are reportedly willing to offer £40m to sign him.

What could prove to be challenging for Arsenal though is the fact that Crystal Palace are demanding an £80m fee, which is double the amount Emery’s side are planning on offering.
