Arsenal are lining up a Premier League attacker to replace the outgoing Alexis Sanchez, while a Newcastle star wants a move to China, according to Sunday’s newspapers.
ARSENAL TARGET £35M PREM ATTACKER
Arsenal are reportedly lining up a £35million bid for Wilfried Zaha to replace Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates.
The Eagles are determined to keep the 25-year-old at Selhurst Park as they battle against potential relegation but are aware on interest in their prized asset.
The Ivory Coast winger returned from injury to score Palace’s winner against Chelsea and grabbed a last-gasp equaliser in the recent 2-2 draw with West Ham.

Tottenham have been the main contenders to land Zaha over the course of the last 18 months but the report in the Sun on Sunday now claims that it is their north London rivals who want the former Manchester United star to replace the outgoing Alexis Sanchez.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is said to be a big fan of Zaha’s attacking style and hopes to beat other suitors to his signature, although at this stage it is not clear if Zaha would arrive in January or the summer given the uncertainty over when Sanchez will quit The Emirates.
