Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is planning a January bid for Crystal Palace starlet Wilfried Zaha.

The Daily Mail says Wenger has been given the green light to go on a January splurge to revive Arsenal's precarious Champions League qualification hopes.

Arsenal will make a £9million offer for Crystal Palace winger Zaha. Palace chairman Steve Parish rates the England Under 21 star at £20m - but an offer of around £15m could be enough to prise the 20-year-old away.
