Transfer: What Zaha said about Arsenal move ahead of AFCON last-16 clash

Wilfried Zaha refused to rule out a move to Arsenal, when asked about his future ahead of Ivory Coast’s last-16 clash with Mali at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Gunners have had a bid of £40million rejected for Zaha, with Crystal Palace understood to be holding out for a fee of around £70m.

Arsenal are believed to be lining up a second offer for the 26-year-old.

Zaha, who scored in a 4-1 victory over Namibia on Monday, is keen to push through a move to his boyhood club this summer.

Asked about Arsenal’s £40m offer, Zaha told On Sport: “I have no comment on it. The only thing that’s on my mind right now is trying to win this cup [AFCON].”

Pressed on whether he would like to play for Arsenal, Zaha replied: “I don’t know… we’ll see in the future.”
