Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger has targeted Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha (€27.9m) as a possible replacement for Alexis Sanchez, according to a story.

The North Londoners are bracing themselves for the exit of their star striker next summer, as he has yet to commit to a new deal and is, therefore, able to speak to outside teams from January.

Wenger was hoping to sign Monaco Wideman Thomas Lemar late in the summer transfer window, only for an agreement to fall flat. However, The Sun suggests that the Frenchman will now go after a footballer closer to home.

The ex-Manchester United star Zaha enjoyed his most prolific campaign to date last time out, performing a direct part in 16 Premier League goals, and he has found scored twice in 2017-18 from just five games.

The story suggests that Arsenal are set to go as high as £35m with their offer for the Ivory Coast international, who only signed a five-year contract in May amid talk of a transfer to Tottenham Hotspur.
