Wilfried Zaha won’t be signing for Arsenal in January after all, claim reports.
An EXCLUSIVE from the Daily Star insists that Zaha, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal (again), won’t be moving in January after all.
The 25-year-old is Crystal Palace’s best player at the moment and they would allegedly be unwilling to allow him to move in the middle of the campaign – even for £35m, which is the sum Arsenal were supposedly willing to cough up.
The Eagles are currently struggling in the Premier League with just four points from 11 games and Zaha has netted two out of their four goals scored. Therefore, you could understand why they want him to stay. If they get relegated, however, it could reportedly be a different story.
The Daily Star were the outlet to claim that Arsenal are close to signing Lyon midfielder, Nabil Fekir, and they’re sticking with this angle as another reason the Gunners won’t be signing Zaha.
Arsenal are allegedly ‘close’ to sealing a £60m deal for the Frenchman, who’s netted 11 goals in 11 Ligue 1 appearances this term and provided three assists.
The 24-year-old is said to be a potential replacement for Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, who are either set to move in January or on a free at the end of the season.
