Arsenal and Man United trail Championship starlet

Crystal Palace’s young starlet Wilfried Zaha’s name is on the agenda for Premier League title challengers Arsenal and Manchester United, according to reports from Talksport.

Palace have produced an array of talent through their youth system over the years with the likes of Victor Moses and John Bostock being picked off by Premier League sides. With The Eagles in danger of dropping into League One, their England U19 striker is likely to be the next player in this sequence.

If Palace do fall through the Championship trapdoor they may well be forced to cash in on their highly rated teenage sensation. The Ivorian born striker is likely to cost in the region of £2 million, a figure which has the potential to rise should the Premiership big guns scrap it out for the youngster.

Arsenal and Manchester United are both renowned for their ability to nurture young players and the prospect of signing for either club will be an opportunity Zaha would relish.
