According to The Sun UK, Zaha's performances have alerted Arsene Wenger, who is now plotting a £35m move for the former Manchester United winger.

Wilfried Zaha is the latest name to be linked with a Gunners move with a potential fee of £35 million quoted in the press.

Zaha is 25-years old, and could give Arsenal several years of high-quality service.

The Crystal Palace midfielder has been a rare positive for their relegation-threatened side, with the winger contributing two of their four league goals so far this campaign.

Wilfried Zaha is a good player and would add a lot to the majority of Premier League teams.

Should he be willing to leave, Arsenal won't be the only interested team to bid for him, as Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is thought to be an equally great admirer of him.

Arsenal could be tempted to cash in on Sanchez in the January transfer window if they receive a bid they deem desirable.

The Gunners seem consigned to losing their Chilean forward, either when his contract expires next summer or in a deal in January.

Spurs were tracking Zaha's progress since returning to Palace from Man United permanently nearly three years ago. Moreover, with bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur reportedly eyeing the former Red Devil, securing this transfer could prove very hard for Arsene Wenger. Zaha has tallied half of those goals.
