Barcelona "seriously considering" signing sensational Arsenal target

Barcelona are “seriously considering” signing Arsenal target Wilfried Zaha, with the La Liga giants having been “offered” the chance to negotiate with the Crystal Palace winger, according to a fresh report.

Zaha, who celebrates his 30th birthday today, has been in electric form for the Eagles this term.

The talismanic winger netted his sixth goal of the campaign in a last-gasp 2-1 victory over West Ham on Sunday, and the Ivorian has claimed he is hoping to beat his season-best tally of 14 goals before the term’s end.

However, it is likely to be the Palace star’s last season for Crystal Palace, with his contract due to expire at the end of the season.


Barca interested

With Zaha’s current deal set to expire next summer, he will be free to discuss pre-contract agreements with clubs on the continent from January 1.

In the past Barcelona have been cited as a club interested in bringing in the winger, though have allegedly been put off by the sizeable transfer fee they would have to pay.



Yet, the Spanish publication Sport is claiming that Barcelona are seriously considering signing Zaha if the package for the deal is “affordable”.

Of course, the Catalan giants are in serious debt, further accented by their elimination from the Champions League.

However, this did not stop them from bringing in several free transfers from the Premier League last summer, including Hector Bellerin, Andreas Christensen and Marcos Alonso.

Arsenal target


Arsenal have long been said to have an interest in bringing in Zaha, while Chelsea have also been credited with having an interest in a deal.

The Blues are even said to have made a late bid for the player at the end of the summer window.

Zaha told Sky Sports: “How many times have I seen my name next to transfer stuff? Me, I never speak on these things.

"My contract is up when my contract is up - I’m a Crystal Palace player. The only thing I’m focused on is doing well for the club. That’s it. I take every day as it comes because I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future.


"So I can’t sit here and say: ‘this is my plan for this’. No, I’m only fixated on what I’m doing tomorrow in training and then what I’m doing Sunday. So yeah I’m very devoted to Palace and that's all I'm thinking about."
