Arsenal are set to test Crystal Palace resolve as they prepare an audacious bid for Wilfried Zaha.
The Daily Star says the Ivory Coast international is desperate to seek a new challenge elsewhere as other premier league clubs like Everton continue to monitor his current situation.
Former Arsenal boss had pushed to secure his signature last summer.
But Mikel Arteta is also a secret admirer and with Aubameyang’s future still in doubt as Barcelona and Juventus sniff around, Arsenal are looking forward to acquiring the services of the versatile Crystal Palace winger.
Barcelona and Juventus are touted to be the favourites to land the Arsenal poacher who is known for his speed and excellent goal record.
Aubameyang’s quality is unquestionable with another 22 premier league goals this season being one shy of the eventual top scorer, Jamie vardy.
Zaha’s asking price may prove to be a difficult one for the majority of his suitors but Palace will still hold out for at least at least £50m despite a tough post-pandemic transfer market.
The 27 years old managed to only score 4 goals and made 3 assists for Crystal Palace this season amidst an injury ravaged season compared to his goal tally last season.
Many pundits believed that he favours a move to Arsenal with an opportunity to play in Europe next season. It appears to be seen where he will eventually end up playing next season.
