Arsenal confident Zaha will join in January

Arsenal are said to be increasingly confident of sealing the transfer of Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha when the winter transfer window opens in January, the Daily Mail has reported.

The Gunners face competition from the likes of Newcastle United, Manchester City and Manchester United but it is believed that the 20-year-old Zaha – an Arsenal supporter – sees his future at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsene Wenger is expected to test Palace’s resolve with a £9m offer at the start of next month, and, while the Mail reports that negotiations have yet to officially open between the buying and selling club, it is felt a deal would be concluded in swift fashion.

Zaha has this season broken into the senior England side, making his debut for Roy Hodgson’s team in a friendly against Sweden. In the Championship, meanwhile, Zaha has made 21 appearances, scoring four goals, for Ian Holloway’s Eagles.
