Arsenal are reportedly ready to put forward a £35m-worth bid in order to sign Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha in January.

ARSENE WENGER wants Wilfried Zaha to replace Alexis Sanchez.

According to the Sun, the Londoners are prepared to launch a £35 million offer for the Ivory Coast worldwide.

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

The winger has shown his importance for Crystal Palace this season, scoring two goals in five matches since returning from injury.

Arsene Wenger was reluctant to let Sanchez leave last summer - especially to a rival Premier League club.

The Gunners would consider selling their wantaway star for £30million in January to ensure they receive some financial benefit of seeing him through the exit door.

The Chilean's antics at the Emirates have been no secret; from stalling a contract extension for nearly a year to trying to force a move to Man City this summer.

Tottenham were tracking Zaha's progress since returning to Palace from Manchester 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 maintained last year's fine form despite the Eagles' problems this term scoring twice so far this season - including the victor against Chelsea - to follow his tally of seven goals and nine assists in 2016-17. The team have already sacked manager Frank De Boer and have recorded just four points from 33 possible.

The Chilean brings flair, brings goals, and instills fear in defenders, while also having the character of a born victor, and while Zaha is talented, he isn't a scratch on Alexis.
