Arsenal send scout to see Palace starlet

Wilfried Zaha Crystal Palace StrikerArsenal have increased their interest in Crystal Palace ace Wilfried Zaha with the club sending a scout to watch the club over the weekend, according to the Daily Mail.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger sent chief scout Steve Rowley to watch Zaha as Palace emerged with a 2-1 victory from the King Power Stadium against Leicester City.

The marksman has been in fine form this season already netting four goals and put in another stellar performance to secure victory on Saturday.

The Eagles have managed to fend off any interest so far for the player, which intensified towards the end of the summer transfer window.

A whole host of Premier League teams including, Tottenham and Manchester City have maintained an interest in the star, with the club not set to let him go on the cheap.

Wenger is believed to be taking a closer look at the transfer market with his charges struggling in their last three outings against Norwich, Schalke and QPR respectively.

The England U21 star played both outings against Serbia for the U21 side in their European championships qualifier, and with Walcott still in on-going discussions over a new contract, Arsenal are keeping a close eye on developments.

Palace Chairman Steve Parish said only just last week that he believed it would take a figure of around £20million to steal the star away from the club’s grasp.

The South London club are still firmly in the promotion chase sitting in 4th place despite recently losing their manager Dougie Freedman to Bolton.
