Arsenal fans across the world keep losing hope of keeping Chile international forward Alexis Sanchez, with every passing day.
The Arsenal contract rebel has refused to pen a new deal and is attracting interest from suitors like French giant Paris Saint-Germain and Premier League money bag Manchester City ahead of the January transfer window.
The Gunners may be left with no choice but to cash in on the Chilean international, alongside Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil, in the New Year to avoid losing the two-star players for nothing in the summer.
Because of this contract situation, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has already been searching for alternative options in the attacking midfield position as a contingency plan in case the Chilean does leave in January.
Wenger’s search has led him to Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha, as per an exclusive report by British publication The Sun.
Wilfried Zaha has undoubted been the star player for Crystal Palace over the last two terms but could be lured away from Palace with his club rocked to the bottom of the English Premier League log.
The Gunners are eyeing a £35million switch for the Ivorian, whose game has immensely developed since he left Manchester to re-join Palace three seasons ago.
Arsenal faces stiff competition from local rivals Spurs but could snap him up once they up their interest with an offer in the New Year.
