Transfer Talks – Arsenal face serious competition from Premier League side in race for £80M-rated transfer target

Arsenal look set to face some pretty serious competition from fellow Premier League side Everton within the race to sign Cote d’Ivoire international Wilfried Zaha before next month’s deadline.

According to Sky Sports, the Toffees are set to hold talks with Crystal Palace sometime this week concerning a deal for Zaha, whose Palace price at a whopping £80M.

This will come back as bad news for Arsenal, who also are in the seek for the player as per Sky Sports’ report, as it looks like they’ll need to fend off some pretty strong competition in the form of Everton if they’re to sign the player this summer.

Rumours are rife concerning Zaha’s future with Palace this summer, and we certainly wouldn’t be stunned to see him leave following this report concerning Everton’s pursuit of the forward.

Zaha has managed to establish himself as one of the most dangerous and exciting forwards in the Premier League in recent years, thus it’s easy to ascertain why clubs as big as Arsenal and Everton are too inquisitive about signing him.

Given Arsenal’s choices in the attack, we don’t see the necessity for them signing Zaha, because the Gunners could do with using that £80M to bolster their choices in defence, the area of their squad that’s the weakest.

However, it looks like the club doesn’t share this same idea if their pursuit of Zaha is anything to go off.
