Arsenal eye £35million Crystal Palace star as Sanchez replacement

The Sun reports that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has already started planning the club's future without Sanchez, who is in his final contract year and does not seem keen to renew. Arsenal are believed to be ready to splash £35 million on Zaha.

Nevertheless, though the 25-year-old hasn't showed any signs of desire to leave Selhurst Park, a move up north might end up being an upgrade, especially with Sanchez's situation looking rather hopeless.

The winger has shown his importance for Crystal Palace this season, scoring two goals in five matches since returning from injury.

Palace headed into the worldwide break rock bottom of the Premier League despite Zaha's displays and are effectively seven points from safety given their goal difference.

Sanchez has refused to sign a contract extension at the Emirates and reports suggest City will make a fresh attempt to sign him in January.

The Chile global is expected to leave Arsenal by the end of the season, with Manchester City the likely destination.

Spurs were tracking Zaha's progress since returning to Palace from Man United permanently nearly three years ago. He played just seven times for the Red Devils.

He has returned in fine form and has scored vital goals for the Eagles, including the victor against Chelsea and a late equaliser against West Ham. Zaha has tallied half of those goals.
