‘Not For £80m’ ‘Rather Spend The Money On Defence’ – Fans Debate Arsenal’s Interest In Talented Ivorian Speedster

Arsenal’s incoming sporting director Edu would like the club to sign Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha this summer, according to reports.

The Eagles’ £80m asking price may, however, push them towards cheaper alternatives like Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser and Ajax’s David Neres.

Fans on Twitter are split over whether the Gunners should go all in and sign Zaha this summer:

There’s no doubt that the Ivorian international has improved immeasurably since his time at Manchester United, but Arsenal have a limited transfer budget.

Zaha would certainly be a perfect fit for what they are looking, a fast, skilful winger, but the only way they could afford him is if they offload other star names first.

In addition, considering the Gunners’ major flaw was defence rather than in attack, you have to think that any funds would be used to fix that glaring weakness first before looking at other areas of the pitch.
