Arsenal are reportedly looking at Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha as a potential replacement for Alexis Sanchez (via The Mirror).
It’s something which will need to be sorted in the coming months as Alexis Sanchez heads for a likely Arsenal exit.
The Chilean has been a crucial player at the Emirates for some time but if he is to leave the club then a suitable replacement will need to be found.
The likes of Thomas Lemar and Julian Draxler have been linked but now, another name is being touted in the English press.
Wilfried Zaha is the latest name to be linked with a Gunners move with a potential fee of £35 million quoted in the press.

Zaha was linked with the Gunners several years ago at the time when he moved to Manchester United.
The winger has shown his importance for Crystal Palace this season, scoring two goals in five matches since returning from injury.
Wilfried Zaha is a good player and would add a lot to the majority of Premier League teams. However, he is nowhere near the level of Alexis Sanchez and his signing would signify a significant step-down for the Gunners.
