Wenger confirms Arsenal interest in Zaha

The Gunners' coach has spoken out about the highly-rated England international, confirming that his name is on a list of transfer targets
Arsene Wenger has confirmed Arsenal's interest in bringing Crystal Palace sensation Wilfried Zaha to the Emirates, claiming that the winger is one of several players being considered by the north London club.

Responding to recent speculation linking The Gunners with a move for the winger, Wenger admitted that they had indeed been looking at Zaha, though "he is not more on the list than anybody else".

Arsenal's apparent interest comes after a Goal.com exclusive revealed that Manchester United were among the frontrunners for the 20-year-old's signature.

Zaha, who made his England debut in the recent friendly against Sweden, is rumoured to have been attracting the interest of a number of top flight sides in the wake of a string of stunning displays for Palace so far this season.

Wenger was also coy on the on-going situation regarding Theo Walcott's contract negotiations, claiming that there is "no new news" to speak of.
