Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha scored one and assisted another in his side’s 5-0 thrashing of Leicester City at Selhurst Park on Saturday, and Arsenal fans have urged their club to sign the Ivory Coast international, rated at £22.5m by Transfermarkt.
The 25-year-old has been one of the Eagles’ standout performers in their bid to avoid relegation to the Championship this term, and he was certainly on form against the Foxes.
The Ivorian has now scored eight goals and provided a further five assists in 27 Premier League appearances this term, with the south London outfit now just two points away from the magic 40-point mark having lost their first seven top flight matches of the campaign.
Arsenal supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on Zaha’s latest display, and while one said “imagine him playing with Ozil, Auba & Ramsey”, another said “he’s everything we are missing at the moment”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Wilfried Zaha is going to be one hell of a signing for someone. I just hope it’s us. @Arsenal he’s everything we are missing at the moment.

I feel Wilfried Zaha would make a fantastic signing for Arsenal. Very underrated and people try and find too many faults with him. He won't always be a starter but he can be an excellent sub option and very useful away from home to do take ons and give us the width. Get him in!

Have been saying this for long… Would be more impacting than Iwiobi…

His directness is something we lack

Tbh he will thrive at Arsenal. The kind of winger we exactly need. Pace, power, dribbling everything you need in a winger Zaha posses all the qualities. Could make first team if consistent, and if not, would be an excellent squad player. https://t.co/duP0LOfczE

Would take Wilfried Zaha at Arsenal in a heartbeat. Every time it's suggested you get Arsenal fans saying "he's useless" but Palace go down without him. He knows the premier league and can come up with match winning goals. Imagine him playing with Ozil, Auba & Ramsey 🔥🔥🔥🔥
