Arsenal are considering making a move for Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha in the summer transfer window, according to The Sun.

Gunners boss Unai Emery is reportedly prioritising homegrown players this summer, and while Zaha chose to represent Ivory Coast over England at the senior international level, he has spent his entire footballing career in the UK after moving to London aged four.

However, with Crystal Palace thought to have set a huge £80million asking price for their star man, this may prove to be a stumbling block for the North London outfit who could have just £40million to spend if they miss out on Champions League qualification by failing to win the Europa League.

The Gunners will also have to compete with rivals Tottenham Hotspur to secure the services of the 26-year-old, with Mauricio Pochettino also linked with a move for the forward.

Zaha has scored 10 Premier League goals in 33 appearances this term.

Zaha has contributed with 10 goals and three assists in his 33 Premier League appearances this season, helping Palace to 12th in the table.

He’s currently in his second spell at Selhurst Park after rejoining the club in 2015 following an unsuccessful spell at Manchester United.

On the international stage, Zaha did make two substitute friendly appearances for England before opting to play for his birth country who he has scored two goals in nine appearances for.
