Arsene Wenger criticised for transfer talk

Wilfred Zaha Crystal Palace winger

Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has hit out at Arsene Wenger over his approach in showing an interest to sign winger Wilfred Zaha for Arsenal.

The Arsenal boss has admitted he is keen on Holloway’s young prospect, while doubts of England forward Theo Walcott’s future at the Emirates still remain.

This has angered the palace boss who has warned off interest from the big clubs as he is reluctant to lose Zaha in January while his team are second in the Championship table and in the middle of a promotion battle to the Premier League.

“Why is he talking about my players? It’s not the game. I will be picking the phone up to talk to him as I don’t think it is right and proper with the greatest respect. That is totally bad etiquette.” He expressed to the Sun.

Zaha, 20, has been a big part of the Eagles success and the recently capped England player is rated at £20million, but clubs look like they will have to wait till at least the summer to make a move for him.

“Wilf is a big part of our season. He won’t be available, no matter what the price is, in January.” Holloway added.
