£80m rated star Zaha reacts to reports Arsenal are keen to seal big summer deal
Arsenal transfer target Wilfried Zaha has taken to social media to break his silence on transfer speculation regarding his future.
Zaha has become one of the most talked about players of the transfer window, as his performances for Palace over the last 12 months have alerted the top clubs to his clear potential.
But Arsenal have emerged as the front-runners to complete a deal for Zaha, as reports in the media have claimed that Unai Emery is desperate to add some width to the squad this summer and add something different to his attack.
The Gunners are financially hamstrung and would appear to have minimal chance of matching Palace’s £80m valuation of their man this summer, despite the wingers preference to leave the club and play at the very highest level of the game.
But the man himself has added fuel to the fire of speculation by posting on his official Twitter account, stating:
“Whatever happened to speaking facts?.
“It’s sad and annoying how anyone will just open their mouth and speak on things or situations they know absolutely nothing about.”
Zaha to Arsenal would excite many Gunners fans as he would bring some real quality and pace to the Gunners attack, but he should not be the priority, especially as Emery only has limited funds to spend this transfer window.
He could be a great signing for Arsenal if they manage to pull this transfer deal off, but they will have to pay more than the £40 million that has been offered already, which could cause a problem as they do not have a lot of funds to spend this window.
Zaha deserves to be at a club like Arsenal and although Palace are determined to keep hold, they are stopping the young man from fulfilling his potential and developing into a player that could become one of the best in the Premier League.
So even though they want £80 million for the winger, they should drop that amount to a more reasonable amount before he becomes unsettled about all the transfer speculation.
