Transfer news: Arsenal are weighing up a move for Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha though manager Arsene Wenger is keeping his cards close his chest over the promising youngster.

The Eagles ace has been the figurehead of their rise up the Championship table this season and earned his first England cap in the 4-2 defeat to Sweden earlier this month.

It has brought attention to the winger and made him one of the hottest transfer targets ahead of the January window.

Wenger is likely to move for a forward when the January transfer window opens, with a short-term loan move for Thierry Henry remaining a possibility.

But, with Palace keen to keep hold of their star man by slapping a big price tag on him, the Frenchman he played down his interest and described him “not more on the list than anybody else”.

As always, Wenger stressed any new addition must bring added value to the group.

“If we find the real top, top, top player then we will be on the market,” he added. “We have no fixed number, we look just at quality.

“We have a good squad, I believe that these players have a fantastic attitude. They deserve success and they will have success.”
