Arsenal boss Wenger joins Man City in Zaha battle

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has joined the battle for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has joined the battle for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

The Sun says Zaha was a Gunners fan as a lad and Wenger hopes that will tempt him to the Emirates instead of Mancini’s Manchester City.

City have made the first moves to sign Zaha, 20, who won a shock call to the national squad for the recent friendly in Sweden.

But Arsenal sources insist Wenger is confident of a January transfer window deal even though Zaha has two years left on his Crystal Palace contract.

Gunners hope an initial bid of just over £10million, plus a variety of achievement-based add-ons, will do the trick.
