Rumour: Manchester United’s Wilfried Zaha interesting Arsenal
Arsenal interested in Wilfried Zaha
Manchester United are reportedly willing to cut their losses on winger Wilfried Zaha, just over a year after the winger moved to the club.
Signed by former boss Sir Alex Ferguson for a fee of around £15 million in January 2013 from Crystal Palace, before being immediately loaned back to the south London side, Zaha has made just two league appearances for United this season.
Recently sent out on loan at Cardiff, where he has also failed to set the world alight, Zaha is believed to be surplus to requirements and Goal are reporting that United are willing to take a £5 million hit on the fee that they paid Palace for the mercurial winger.
Palace have made no secret of their desire to bring Zaha back to south London, where he would add to their pacey wide options in competition with Yannick Bolasie – impressive against Liverpool – and Jason Puncheon, while Goal also believe that a number of other sides are monitoring the one-cap England man.
They report that Arsenal, who were interested when Zaha signed for United, Newcastle and Tottenham are all interested, while the Old Trafford side are also willing to loan him out should they not receive a suitable offer, with Wigan a potential destination should they return to the Premier League.
