‘No comment’ – Zaha refuses to discuss potential Arsenal transfer

Wilfried Zaha has refused to comment on speculation linking him with a big-money move to Arsenal.

The Crystal Palace forward has emerged as a key target for Unai Emery’s side, with Arsenal seeing an audacious opening offer of £40m instantly rejected.

The Ivory Coast international is believed to have informed the Palace hierarchy of his desire to leave the club this summer, with the 26-year-old reportedly keen on a move to North London to fulfil his ambitions of playing European football.

Zaha is currently with the national team at this summer’s African Cup of Nations, and the £80m-rated star refused to comment on Arsenal’s rejected bid.

“I have no comment on it. The only thing that’s on my mind right now is trying to win this cup [AFCON],” he told On Sport.

Zaha was then pressed on whether he would like to play for Arsenal, with the forward coy on his future plans.

“I don’t know… we’ll see in the future.”
