Arsenal eye stunning move to sign Premier League star

Zaha was recently named Crystal Palace Player of the Year for the third season in succession and has consistently proved himself to be their biggest talent, but he may wonder if he can achieve more elsewhere with a move.

Zaha, has been fundamental in seeing the Eagles stay in the English top-flight for next season, scoring eight league goals, one of those strikes coming against Chelsea in the 2-1 defeat at Selhurst Park in October.

When asked if a potential new contract was on the table, Hodgson responded: 'I don't talk about contracts or salaries. This is his club.

That will naturally be a concern as those are all clubs potentially capable of offering Zaha a battle for a top four spot next season and with that comes the appeal of competing for major honours and playing in the Champions League.

Having been a critical part of that turnaround under Roy Hodgson, the last thing that the club will want is to now lose him this summer as it could leave them in trouble next year when they'd rather hope to build on their improvement. "He is ours and I still believe he will be when the season begins".

Now older and more experienced, Zaha has been one of the standout performers in the Premier League of late, which led to him collecting April's Player of the Month award.

The Ivory Coast global scored four goals - including a brace in the 3-2 win over rivals Brighton - and registered an assist as Palace went unbeaten with two wins and two draws.

'I'm talking purely in football terms and what we can offer him in terms of allowing him to continue to improve as a player.
