Arsenal and Spurs set to battle it out to sign Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha this summer

Arsene Wenger has joined the £30million race for Wilfried Zaha.

The Arsenal boss wants the Crystal Palace winger and will fight with Tottenham for him this summer.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 23, and Carl Jenkinson, 25, are wanted by Palace boss Sam Allardyce and that pair could form part of the deal.


Ox has one season left on his terms and Palace are among a host of clubs looking at his situation, while Jenkinson came close to a Selhurst Park move in January.

But Wenger is also prepared to swoop for Zaha, 24, for straight cash after looking at his forward options for next season.

Alexis Sanchez also has one season left on his deal and Wenger will aim to freshen  his attack even if the Chile star stays.

The Frenchman has been impressed with Zaha’s form – which included a star role against Arsenal last month.

His form this term has earned an Ivory Coast call-up and has also prompted Palace to look at an improved deal for one of their key performers.

Zaha also scored in a win over champions-elect Chelsea when he returned from the African Cup of Nations
