Arsenal have joined a host of top clubs and Tottenham, in the race to sign highly coveted Crystal Palace striker Wilfried Zaha.

The 24 year old is enjoying his best ever season in the English top flight, and was again exceptional in the shock 2-1 defeat of Chelsea last weekend, a game which gave Chelsea’s title bid a bit of a wobble.

Zaha was particularly unplayable at Stamford Bridge, terrorising the Blues backline time and time again with his dribbling and direct running.

Zaha, who had to endure a nightmare season at Manchester United is back on the radar of top clubs once again and is being monitored by the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool.

The Guardian reports that Arsenal have now joined the race for his signature, and that the player could be interested in a move to The Gunners, as it would mean he wouldn’t have to leave London.

The Crystal Palace attacking midfielder, who recently switched his national team allegiance to Ivory Coast has been in sensational form all season, and was the subject of a failed £15m approach by Tottenham last season.

He has scored six and assisted seven more but despite this he looks frustrated with the Premier League team, and the Eagles look to cement their top flight status under Sam Allardyce, after an indifferent start to the season under Alan Pardew.
