Arsenal have joined the battle for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha. The Daily Mail says former Gunners assistant manager Pat Rice - who still works for the club despite retiring in the summer - watched the 19-year-old forward score twice in the Eagles' 4-3 win over Burnley on Saturday.

Arsenal have sent scouts to a clutch of Palace's games primarily to watch Zaha and are now emerging as serious contenders to land the youngster.
