Arsenal sees Crystal Palace winger Zaha as Alexis replacement

Arsenal are ready to move for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

The Daily Star says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has identified the Crystal Palace attacker as the man he wants when Alexis Sanchez eventually joins Manchester City.

Sanchez scored twice for the Gunners when they beat Zaha's Palace 3-2 on Thursday.

But it was noticeable some team-mates failed to celebrate with him after his first strike.

And Arsenal legend Thierry Henry claimed on Sky that the long drawn-out departure of Sanchez had caused divisions in the camp.

Palace boss Roy Hodgson revealed earlier this month he could not guarantee Ivory Coast international Zaha, 25, would still be at the club after next month's transfer window.
